Another news blooper that is going viral on social media is that of a TV Urdu journalist from Pakistan. News bloopers can be funny as they are painful to watch, and one such incident is that of a Geo TV reporter. The video shows the reporter, Amin Hafeez sitting on a donkey reporting on the thriving donkey trade which in turn is making the traders happy and the initiatives taken by the government for the welfare of the animals. To intensify the thriving trade, which the four-legged creatures are credited to, Hafeez can be seen sitting on the donkey to illustrate its worth, although, much to his embarrassment, he can be seen falling off the donkey as the animal tries to gallop. And just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, the whole accident is recorded live. Onlookers can be seen grinning and laughing at the unforeseen accident. Luckily for him, the video cuts just in time so that we don’t see what happened to the journalist after he falls off.

News bloopers are in bountiful and Hafeez’s unfortunate accident caught LIVE is just another grain in the sand. Talking about Pakistani news bloopers, remember the one time where a reporter was chased by a grazed cow?
As news bloopers always do, this video of Hafeez has gone viral with funny memes and tweets. One user wrote, ‘’ Amin Hafeez deserves every journalism award in the world’’. Another wrote, ‘’Best thing you may enjoy watching in a long time’’. While another one wrote, ''I am willing to pay a sizable amount of cash to see the footage of Amin Hafeez falling off the donkey''.

Taking about the donkeys, the Pakistan Economic Survey of 2017-18 released in April 2018, noted that the number of donkeys in the country has increased by 100,000 to 5.3 million. Given the huge contribution by donekys, Geo News reported that the Punjab government has even stablished a ‘donkey hospital’ where the animals are being treated free of cost.
