BBC reporter Alex Dunlop was filming a live newscast at the Banham Zoo in Norfolk, England. Then, his broadcast took a very unexpected turn when a number of lemurs showed up.
As Alex introduced himself, the lemurs jumped up and basically attacked the reporter on air. But he kept going like a true champ.
In the video below, we see Alex struggling to speak as several lemurs hop onto him and pull at his body. He says, “I’m at one of the region’s zoos, where they’re doing their annual stock take of animals.”
Suddenly, one of the lemurs starts nipping at Alex’s hand, and he yells.
Although the lemurs are taking over his newscast, Alex tries his best to cope and move on. Luckily, the cameraman helps Alex through the segment and tells him, “Just go for it!”
As the lemurs pounce on Alex, he musters up the strength to keep going. Unfortunately, the lemurs show no signs of stopping, and the reporter realizes he just has to work through it, even if his newscast is already ruined.
But hey, at least it’s entertaining! What do you think of this surprising TV moment?
