These Local News Anchors Just Can't Get It Together After Embarrassing Flub

The on-air gaffe you never knew you needed right now.

Oh, typos... They can happen anywhere, but they do provide some much-needed entertainment when they occur on a teleprompter.

Eric Philips, the morning news anchor at NBC12 in Richmond, Virginia, was reading a story about a rice cooker recall that should have been warning viewers to check their pantries. Instead, he opened with the most bizarre of lead sentences. 

“Soooo embarrassed, ” Philips said in a Twitter post.

But he seemed to take the whole event in his stride. Plus, the moment made it onto the “Today” show!

Check out the gaffe in the video above.
