Will photobombs and videobombs ever stop being hilarious?
Mario is the latest victim of a videobomb on live TV when he was reporting on Shia’s recent arrest for PIX11.
Erykah, wearing a large, Pharrell-esque hat, awkwardly walked back and forth in the background of the live shot multiple times making goofy faces and hand gestures. Then, she unexpectedly grabbed Mario’s arm and tried to give him a kiss on the cheek!
Despite the interruption, Mario stayed professional and was able to recover as gracefully as one could. He gently pushed her off saying, “Excuse me,” before he finished his live shot.

@MarioPIX11 sorry Mario. :-)))))
