It has been four years since BBC News presenter Simon McCoy went live on air holding a stack of A4 papers instead of an iPad. But clearly, his employers haven't forgotten the flub and aren't letting him forget it either.
BBC Three tweeted a hilarious clip that shows the broadcaster discussing "drunk tanks," all the while holding a stack of A4 papers - the kind you'd use to refill an office printer, perhaps. To his credit, the anchor manages to pull off his piece to camera with a straight face.
Watch the hilarious mix-up below:
In just one day, the throwback video has been 'liked' over 20,400 times and retweeted over 9,400 times. And while it may have happened four years ago, the goof-up still has the Internet laughing out loud.
