Eric Philips, an anchor at NBC 12 in Richmond, Virginia, made the embarrassing mistake live on air before bursting into laughter after noticing his blunder.
Philips was introducing a segment on the recall of a brand of rice and slow cookers in America. It was like watching a scene from Anchorman! The phrase was meant to be “Check your pantries,” in regards to the food recall. The crew on set had a big laugh and now the clip has gone viral. Now we know what a simple mistake, like a removing an “R” from a script, can do to a newscast. The internet is having fun with this one.
