Think you’ve had a bad year? Well, any embarrassing gaffes you made will pale in comparison to the ones in this video round-up of the year’s best bloopers in broadcast news.

There is definitely a “creepy crawlers” theme in the 15-minute-long montage, as TV journalists brave encounters with flying insects on the beach, cicadas at an Army base, or a tarantula crawling across a female anchor’s chest in the studio. One anchor got attacked by a black cat, while a terrier kept begging a weatherman to play fetch live on the air.

The journalists in this video are probably already hoping for a blooper-free 2016.
