Watch the Best News Bloopers of 2016

1 minute read

Anything can happen on live broadcast television. Luckily, this reel of the best news bloopers from the year is one masterful supercut of all the funniest, most outrageous, and most uncomfortable things that happened on air over the last twelve months. From (many) animal mishaps—like misbehaving snakes and frisky giraffes—to uncomfortable NSFW innuendos between newscasters in their transition moments, there’s plenty to laugh about.

There are also some seriously cringeworthy excerpts, like the moment a disembodied hand appears onscreen to offer a sweater to a weatherwoman in the middle of her broadcast. “You want me to put this on? Why?” she asks. “We’re getting a lot of emails,” one of the anchors says, presumably regarding her spaghetti-strap dress. “I look like a librarian now,” she says uncomfortably. “That works!” rejoins the anchor.

And that’s just the start. Take a spin through the year’s most bizarre and best bloopers below.
