NBC Meteorologist Caught in an Awkward Position on Live TV


NBC meteorologist Mike Seidel wasn’t quite ready for a live shot on Saturday, and so got caught on television in an, um, awkward position:

Does that look a bit like he’s relieving himself to you? Because that was the consensus from viewers who saw it live:

Seconds after Lester Holt cut to Seidel, someone shouted at him to turn around. And you can hear Seidel asking why, just before Holt realizes he’s not ready yet and moves on.

NBC did comment on the incident, telling the New York Daily News that Seidel had dropped his phone and was not taking a whiz in the woods.

You can watch the moment here, via NBC:
