The awkward moment when the auto-cue fails. Live on air.

Last night involved some beautifully cringe-worthy TV for Adelaide viewers.

We think they did a great job, given the circumstances.  Check out the clip:

Twitter users have since turned the highlights reel of the on-air drama in GIFs. As you do:

Ah, the beauty of live TV.
