Our contributor Shahran Asim sent me this really funny TV blooper clip.

The clip shows a newscast on Samaa New TV where the anchor thinks she is going to interview political analyst Talat Hussain; instead she finds herself talking to the TV drama actor Talat Hussain. Watch. Laugh. But be kind. Its a funny mistake. But maybe we need a few laughs now and then in our TV news; since the real news is so very depressing.

This TV blooper is reqally quite funny. Nearly (although not quite) as funny as this one we had posted about the re-take after re-take bythis TV news reporter. I wonder what happened to the producer whohad booked the wrong Talat Hussain.

    Impressed by the anchor for keeping her cool.

    Although the other anchor (on left) was trying to hide her smile :-)

    What makes it funnier is that the newsreader thanks him anyway and doesn’t apologize.

    You have to watch this one as well if you haven’t. It’s HILARIOUS!

    How very very funny.

    Yes, the anchor woman should at least have apologized.

    agree with anon up there. the fact that she still thanked him, makes it even funnier

    Newscaster may have asked the Artist Talat Hussain to comment any way :-)

    She could have said that in fact we are looking for artisit’s view points on situation at hand :-)

    Very funny indeed. But I think the anchor should have apologized or said something funny rather than acting as if nothing was wrong.

    Such bloopers can happen on any network….even the Great BBC has seen its fair share of it. One of the classics is when they accidentally interviewed live on Air (someone who was waiting for a job related interview) as an ‘expert’ on the Online music industry.

    Hilarious indeed.

    Well, that is interesting. And you might also want to take a look here: This shows the reality of the reality show on the same channel.

    @Karim Khan

    Thanks for the link you put it, That program ‘The Anchor’ always makes my blood boil. Three loser judges are just badtameez and specially the guy (Zulfiqar I think) is not just bad mannered but also quite stupid. The woman judge only insults people and none of them knows the difference between being tough as a judge and being insulting. They use gutter talk and given that all three judges are failures themselves it is funny but sad what they do.
