Real life Ron Burgundy: News anchor caught out by teleprompter prank
An American news reader has gone viral after falling for the classic teleprompter joke made famous in the original 'Anchorman' film.
NBC26's anchorwoman caught out her weather presenting co-star with the gag, using a quote from the film to recreate the notorious scene from the cult classic.
Her unsuspecting co-star read out the line 'I love Lamp' before realising he'd been had.
Through peals of laughter, she said she couldn't believe he feel for it, adding 'he will read anything on the teleprompter' - another reference to the film.
Watch the hilarious footage above.
