Oblivious (And Semi-Nude) Dad Barges In On TV News Cross

Oblivious (And Semi-Nude) Dad Barges In On TV News Cross

A news reporter from the US has had a cross interrupted in memorable fashion.

SNNTV reporter Jessica Lang was updating viewers on the coronavirus outbreak in Florida.

Like many of us, Lang was working from home at the time, with her father clearly unaware the camera was rolling.

He emerges from the hallway in the process of pulling a t-shirt on, causing Lang to respond simply: “Dad… holy crap!”

Lang shared the clip on Twitter with a caption that many will relate to right now: “work from home they said, it’ll be fine they said.”

The six-second clip has since gone viral on social media, attracting almost 700,000 views and 1,400 retweets.

“On the bright side, he has his pants on,” one user pointed out.

It’s not the first time a TV cross has been interrupted by an unknowing family member.

In 2017, professor Robert Kelly went viral when his kids stormed in on an interview with the BBC from his desk.

Just last week, Kelly gave a follow-up interview with the broadcaster, detailing life working from home with misbehaving children and cameras.
