Porn Accidentally Broadcast Live On Greek Evening News (NSFW)

By Sam Gibbs on at

It seems smut gets everywhere, even on the evening news. Legions of Greeks watched in horror as a graphic sex scene played out in the background of a report by the state-owned public broadcaster on the latest unrest across the nation. The news anchor seemed none-the-wiser as to what was happening over his shoulder.

The irony is that the porn, which happened to be playing in the background, was in fact being broadcast on the network's sister channel right that minute. Talk about internal advertising. Who in their right mind puts a channel that could, at any minute, start showing smut up on the big screen in the office, let alone in a broadcast studio.

I guess the Greeks have always been a bit progressive when it comes to this stuff, although I suspect someone probably got fired for that little slip. Can you imagine this happening over George Alagiah's shoulder on the Beeb? Oh the shame. [YouTube via Gawker]
