WATCH | 'Jessica, we are live' — awkward live TV moemish has the streets in a mess

Social media users cringed in unison on Wednesday after a video of an awkward moment between two presenters went viral on social media.

In the video NBC Namibia News presenter Elmarie Kapunda can be heard speaking about a boxing match, before turning to sports presenter Jessica Kaimu.

Kaimu interrupts her, saying: “No. We are not going to do that. You’re just going to greet me and say 'take it away'.”

There was an awkward pause before Kaimu is told that they are “live”.

The two then stare in silence until the broadcast is cut.

NBC confirmed the incident took place on Wednesday evening between the presenters, but said it had no further comment.

An account in Kaimu's name, which celebrated her first live broadcast on the show last year, did not comment on the incident.

Meanwhile, social media was flooded with reaction.

EFF MP Mbuyseni Ndlozi was among those in stitches at the video and said it was the “Jessica, we are live” moment that had him defeated.

Others shared hilarious memes and jokes about the incident.
