YouTube Was Made for Clumsy Cameramen

There's nothing like a little slapstick to liven up a newscast (or anything, really), so we were delighted to come across this YouTube video of a cameraman just going lens-down on the pavement during an interview.

There's nothing like a little slapstick to liven up a newscast (or anything, really), so we were delighted to come across this YouTube video of a cameraman just going lens-down on the pavement during an interview. The British network ITN posted the outtake from an interview with David Miliband, a Labour Party politician. But whatever Miliband has to say is far less engaging than what's happening behind the camera, where the operator lost his footing and took a dive. Is this the new version of that reporter who fell while stomping grapes? Actually, it's kind of a surprise more camera people don't trip and fall, since their job is to not look where they're going a lot of the time. Perhaps they do and their employers just don't post the footage. But ITN did. Thank you, ITN.
