Reporter Gets High Next to Pile of Burning Drugs, Can’t Stop Laughing

On-the-field reporters get exposed to a variety of strange things. Whether they’re reporting on a violent event, a wild celebration or even a burning drug pile, these journalists have to really put themselves out there for their jobs.

The last of those scenarios is what one BBC News correspondent found himself in recently, while reporting on a burning pile of drugs in the Middle East. Standing next to the burn-out, Quentin Sommerville seems to be affected by the “8.5 tons of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics,” as he breaks into a laughing fit that he just can’t recover from. Now we can’t tell for sure if he’s laughing at the absurdity of the situation or if he’s actually high on the stuff, but whatever it is, we love every second of it.

Check it out above and laugh along.
