BBC news presenter mistakes pack of printer paper for an iPad

That’s the reason the BBC is running with, anyway

BBC news presenter Simon McCoy made possibly the most cringy gaffe ever - he mistook a pack of photocopier paper for an iPad when presenting the news.

Well, we assume that’s what happened - either that or he was loading the printer when he was called on to present and didn’t have time to put it down. Or he wet himself and grabbed the nearest thing to hand to cover the embarrassing damp patch.

Though that wouldn’t make any sense, as an iPad would cover the patch just as well and look half as suspicious.

Anyway, well done to him, for deadpanning through the entire broadcast - he almost pulled it off.

Watch the full video below. It’s worth it:
