Hey, we all want a look our best for a photo and that’s arguably the case for TV reporter Matt Bradley in a weekend live cross.
The American works for NBC and, it should be said, has one of the tougher jobs in reporting live from war-torn Syria.
NBC’s anchor, Ali Velshi, led the story that centred on the defeat of the ISIS’ caliphate and ongoing hostilities in the region when he crossed live to Bradley for comment.
“Matt, what’s the situation for you,” Velshi asked as a silent Bradley appeared on-screen, unaware that he was now on live TV.
Bradley – clearly unhappy with his hair – then attempted to give it a quick fix by spitting not once but twice into his hands.
Several uncomfortable seconds follow as Velshi awaits a response from the clueless reporter.
“We do not have Matt, we will come back to him as we get him,” Velshi eventually said.
