Nothing is more awkward when a person, who has a job that is performed in front of a lot of people, really messes up and is unable to recover. If you are a sports reporter, your job is to report and commentate on highlights of a game. As you will see in this video clip, this young, up and coming sports reporter totally has a melt down on live TV (actually he’s definitely not up and coming, he’s definitely down and going).
You can tell that his brain is performing a mental fart, which is defined by URBAN DICTIONARY as an involuntary release of stupidity, usually occurring at the least opportune time. The video even starts out with him not even realizing that the camera is even rolling RFA (really fucking awkward). You can hear the reporters sighs of desperation as he searches for any type of dialogue to narrate. My favorite line is when he says, “He passes it to the man….And he shoots….And BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE.” If you are interested in feeling awkward and uncomfortable for about 4 minutes, definitely watch this video.
Next video is of a girl who was elected by the fans to sing the National Anthem prior to an NBA basketball game, and as you will see something very awkward occurs.
You gotta feel for this girl. It was a very sweet moment when the coach Maurice Cheeks went to go help her out and then the rest of the fans joined in to help her out as well. However, CMON!!! Its the National Anthem, and you were chosen to sing! SING! Know the words! Seeing someone buckle under pressure equals RFA! NO DOUBT!
Finally, this is part hilarious, part awkward. This talk show host from Belgium cannot keep himself from laughing while he interviews a man, whose voice was altered due to a medical mistake. This is supposed to be a somber, thoughtful, and caring interview, but the talk show host cannot help but laugh at this man’s squeaky voice. The audience at the studio and all viewers from home know what is going on and totally feel uncomfortable from what is happening.
