We can’t get enough news bloopers around here, and this recent one takes the cake.

Australia’s WIN News Canberra anchor Kerryn Johnston was rehearsing her on air cues for that night’s broadcast when she joked about delivering her newscast sounding drunk.

The only problem was, it wasn’t a rehearsal.  Johnston didn’t realize she was already live on air and her joke saying, “Good evening. Tonight I’m going to sound like a drunk” was broadcast over the airwaves.

According to MSN Now, the spot aired after midnight and was caught by diligent ears and promptly uploaded to YouTube where it has now amassed over 650,000 views since Aug. 1st.

Watch the video below.
