Is this Weatherman Really Peeing on Live TV?

We don’t know if this was a planned joke or a genuinely inopportune moment for one news station, but a weather man was recently caught unguarded on live television when the news desk passed the broadcast over to him and captured him in what we imagine to be quite an embarrassing moment.

Exactly what Mike Seidel was doing isn’t entirely clear, but from the viewer’s vantage point it sure looks like he was urinating in the woods. Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go.

Some YouTube commenters have argued he wasn’t going number one and was instead texting on his phone with his back turned towards the camera, while others have come up with much wilder alternative that we won’t list here for the sake of modesty — just use your imagination. Whatever the case may be, one thing is clear: The video is making the rounds online and going viral fast.
