Canadian television reporter Kent Molgat may have experienced the most painful news blooper of all-time when he walked smack into a pole on the job.
Molgat was trying to ambush a lawyer for an interview. He was walking at a brisk pace with his microphone in hand when he hit a pole. "Oh my God that hurt!" he exclaimed. Even the person he was trying to chase down stopped to make sure that he was okay.
The video has been making the rounds online, but it was Molgat himself who posted it to his Facebook profile on Wednesday. "Ok. Go ahead and have a good laugh. This is me failing to navigate around a perfectly visible post," he wrote.
