We amuse you, Russia? We make you laugh? We're here to amuse you?

Well, apparently... yes. Remember this awesome story from last year about a marijuana grow op in B.C. that was using guard bears? We all thought it was pretty funny.

Well, not as funny as a certain Russian news anchor. We just stumbled across this YouTube video of said anchor trying to get through the story without laughing. No mean feat, apparently.

Oh, those Russians. But after we watched this clip a couple of times, it got us thinking about some of our other favourite YouTube "broadcaster fail" moments over the years. So why not re-post them?

Remember this reporter who revealed his street level alter-ego thanks to a bug? (Caution! Profanity.)

This one is classic. The "on the street" reporter versus the desk anchor, on air! They go at it around the :55 sec mark.

And sometimes, professionals are anything but, when confronted with a name that sounds like something else. (Caution! Language, again.)
