‘Jessica, we’re live’: the hilarious moment reporter complains about how the TV anchor introduced her before finding out she’s on the air … triggering a VERY tense stare among women
- Jessica Kaimu attacked reporter Elmarie Kapunda for the way she presented her bulletin when she was told: “Jessica we are alive”
- A deadly silence fell on the couple who could only glance at each other
- An unbearable tension boiled between them before the show stopped
This is the hilarious and awkward moment when a Namibian sports presenter complained to her colleague about how she introduced her segment, before she was told it was live on the air.
Jessica Kaimu attacked TV host Elmarie Kapunda for the way she presented her newsletter when she was told, “Jessica, we’re alive.”
A deadly silence fell over the stunned pair of TV hosts who could only stare at each other until the show stopped.
Elmarie Kapunda’s stunned gaze left viewers speechless and went viral on the web
Jessica Kaimu gave her colleague a dusting, apparently believing they were still in rehearsal mode
The two women cast deadly glances at each other in total silence after being told they are on the air
The hilarious moment saw dozens of memes shared online and even a re-enactment by their colleagues in South Africa on SABC News.
Namibia Broadcast Corporation (NBC) has not yet commented on the incident.
The clip shows Kapunda concluding his news program with an off-the-cuff introduction to the sports segment.
‘No, we won’t! You will greet me and say, “Take it away,” ‘Kaimu replies angrily, as if she believes they are trying.
There is a pause before an off-screen colleague tells her I’m live.
And what follows is a horribly awkward silence with women who can’t help but exchange angry glances.
The camera falls on TV host Kapunda who looks ahead blinking before her face gets tricked and looks straight at the sports reporter.
The director then quickly makes the decision to stop them.
The #JessicaWeAreLive hashtag was soon trending on Twitter with plenty of hay made for the tense interaction being broadcast live in Namibia on Wednesday night.
South African journalist Sakina Kamwendo and sports presenter Vaylen Kirtley also made their own version, playing the roles of Kapunda and Kaimu on the set of SABC News.
