TV reporter splits pants live on air (Video)

View Comments

During a “Lanie’s Backyard BBQ” segment Wednesday on WXII 12 News in Winston-Salem, N.C., reporter Chris challenged a local high school cheerleader to do a toe touch. The cheerleader performed flawlessly. When Chris tried the same move — despite a friendly warning from meteorologist Lanie Pope — things didn’t go so well.

The loud “pop” could be audibly heard, sending Chris scurrying away and causing Lanie to laugh hysterically. The video has already been viewed thousands of times, and we hope Chris’ ego isn’t too bruised. As for the pants? Well, he’ll need to go shopping before his next segment.
