Reporter Freaks Out Over Flying Bug on Live TV

The news world can be a tough business — uncovering corrupt politicians, navigating dangerous war zones, and investigating emotionally-painful human interest stories.

And then… there are… the bugs.

From spiders to cock roaches, lots of people hate tiny insects scurrying, scuttling and buzzing about. Reporters are no exception to those feelings. But when it happens on live TV, and they freak out in a totally honest way like the rest of us, it’s pretty amazing.

A reporter for Fox 5 in San Diego was covering the heat wave hitting “America’s Finest City” when a June bug decided to get some of its own camera time. Watch as this guy freaks out during the live report — and then the fun his newsroom friends had with the footage later on. It’s a nice distraction for your day.
