It's always a risk for a television station to do live news reports from a location.

It's impossible to control your surroundings and the people who may be in the background.

Live news reports also present a challenge for some people. That is, how can they get "in the shot."

A funny thing happened on the Ocean City Boardwalk

6 ABC was doing a live report from Ocean City when an enterprising young man found a way to prank the TV crew.

Yes, he was able to make it into the shot and the results were...kinda hilarious!

Luckily, it was all good fun, no one was hurt or anything like that. It didn't appear that the reporter was aware of what was going on behind her.

 *"The look on the guy holding the pizza tho."

 *"He knew the assignment."

*"Me at Target."

It appears that the prankster is someone named Dawson. He posted another view of what happened - and, it appears he won a small bet with his hijinx.
