Watch This BBC Anchor Pull A Ron Burgundy Teleprompter Fail

Like Ron Burgundy, it appears this BBC new presenter will read anything off of the teleprompter.

While it's not nearly as bad as that one time when Burgundy told San Diego to go fuck itself, the real-life presenter's fail is pretty hilarious. After the broadcast cuts away from a news report, the presenter reads one of his teleprompter cues aloud, saying "pause for effect," before proceeding to the next story without skipping a beat. Props for holding it together like a pro, and double props for pulling a legendary Ron Burgundy. 

After all, who doesn't want to be like Ron Burgundy? Just his jazz flute skills alone...
