Youtube Prankster Disrupts FA Cup Coverage With Sex Noises
Youtube prankster disrupts FA Cup coverage with sex noises. Gary Lineker, who hosts Match of the Day, has said that he doesn't care that a YouTube prankster made sexnoises during the live broadcast.
As Lineker provided pre-match build-up before the Wolves vs. Liverpool match, sounds from a pornographic video could be heard.
During a mad search of the studio, a hidden cell phone was found. On Tuesday's episode (17 Jan) of the show, Daniel Jarvis, a Youtube prankster disrupts FA Cup coverage with sex noises.
The BBCissued an apology to any affected viewers. Later, Lineker tweeted a picture of the phone he said was "taped to the back of the set" and said that he didn't think he should apologize.
As far as sabotage goes, he felt it was a "nice prank" and "very hilarious." The hoax was carried out while Lineker hosted the program with commentators Danny Murphy and Paul Ince in a studio at Wolverhampton's Molineux Stadium.
Later on Tuesday, Lineker revealed that he initially believed a video had been delivered to one of the pundits' phones that they had unintentionally left on to Newsnight on BBC Two.
But he said it was "extremely loud," and he noticed that when the filmmakers left the studio to show a video clip, the noise stopped all of a sudden. So, he decided that someone watching TV had to be the one who was setting them off from a distance.
The broadcaster responded that it was "very difficult" to continue with the pre-match build-up because he could not understand what any of the producers were saying in his earbuds when Newsnight asked how loud the sound effect was in the studio.
He once had to explain to the audience what he believed was happening, saying, "Somebody's sending something on someone's phone, I think."
"I don't know whether you heard it at home."
As soon as the match began, a thorough search began, and the studio realized it would be 45 minutes before Lineker and the analysts returned to review the first-half action.
It didn't take long for Lineker to provide the justification on Twitter, where he posted an image of a phone along with the words: "Well, we found this taped to the back of the set."
The BBC said in an official statement,
A Youtube prankster disrupts FA Cup coverage with s*x noises and the BBC's press office released a statement after that.
The sounds were audible before Liverpool's FA Cup third-round replay victory over Wolves at Molineux. Gary Lineker, the host, had a red face as a result of the incident, which appeared to be the result of a phone taped to the back of the studio set.
