There have been plenty of accidental on-camera appearances that have gone viral after being posted online, but none have been quite as satisfying as the latest one that shows an unsuspecting cop realizing he was on television.
In the short clip from Fox 2 St. Louis, reporter Anthony Kiekow is broadcasting live, covering an apartment fire, when a local police officer is seen walking up toward the camera. As the cop suddenly realizes he is on live television, he stops dead in his tracks, appears to think for a brief moment, and quickly shuffles out of the shot.
The clip has now gone viral, and although the officer’s identity has not been revealed, he’ll likely become an Internet sensation in no time.
Check out the hilarious moment below.
