A news reporter in Russia, while broadcasting a weather forecast on live television, was forced to do something rather bizarre – run behind a furry mugger who stole his microphone. In a hilarious video that has gone viral on social media, the reporter is seen running behind a dog that leaped up and grabbed the microphone from her socket.

Many are now sharing the clip on social media, especially Twitter. Just like this post from journalist Ali Ozkok. “A dog in Russia grabbed the journalist’s microphone and ran away on a live broadcast,” he wrote while sharing the video.

The video features Mir TV weather reporter Nadezhda Serezhkina, Daily Mail reports.

The clip opens to show her delivering her song when suddenly the dog jumps up and steals the microphone. The clip then shows her running behind the dog trying to stop him. What’s even more fun to watch is the professional demeanor of anchor Elina Dashkueva, back in the studio, throughout the incident.


Since being shared a day ago, the video has garnered over 5.2 million views – and the numbers are only increasing. He also racked up tons of comments from people.

Responding, a Twitter user shared what happened after the reporter retrieved the dog’s microphone. Among other things, the clip also shows the reporter shaking the dog’s paw. Looked:
