We dare you not to LOL fovever at this

You would think that Will Ferrell's classic performance in Anchorman would encourage newsreaders to be on their toes when it comes to the autocue, but it looks like that just hasn't happened yet.

Not if this major fail is anything to go by anyway!

Set up by some mischievous colleagues, a news anchor in the States delivered one of Anchorman's most memorable lines without even realising it during a broadcast this week.

After a little banter between him and his co-host, Brian Niznansky of NBC26 turned to the camera, paused and found himself delivering the classic 'I love lamp' line.

Oh, Brian.

And if that wasn't bad enough, he repeated it sheepishly a few times after realising his mistake.

Stop Brian, stop!
