Ahhh, the joys of live television.
As if stuffing up at work weren’t bad enough, spare a thought for all those unfortunate sods who’ve done so with the cameras rolling.
After a video of ABC news presenter Natasha Exelby mesmerised by her pen during a weekend broadcast went viral this week, other Aussie journalists decided to show solidarity in the silliest way possible… by humiliating themselves on social media, obviously.
There was a public outcry yesterday when it was widely reported Exelby may have been stood down from future on-air roles at the public broadcaster.
Thankfully, this is not the case, but by the time the ABC clarified her employment status the #putyourbloopersout hashtag was already trending.
From falling asleep to dropping the F-bomb, there were some real doozies. We put together a few of our favourites in the video above.
It's time to honour the brave souls who suffered for us all.
