There's nothing like a live TV segment going wrong, huh?

This isn't the first time BBC News presenter Simon McCoy has gone viral.

He has previously expressed disdain for infuriating news reports - on more than one occasion.

This time around, McCoy recognised the hilarity and absurdity of it all, as he reported on a British musician who's been playing the piano to monkeys at historic sites in Thailand.

The musician is hoping to raise awareness of their hunger.

But as the camera cuts to the man playing the piano, with monkeys crawling all over him, stealing his music, tugging at his hair and clothes, and creating other mischief, it's all just too silly - you can't blame Simon McCoy for cracking up.

Check it out.


The reporter retweeted the segment saying he was "Not broken. Just scarred."
