An ice hockey cheerleader (we didn't know they existed either) has been left red-faced after wiping out on live TV.
A Fox 5 news crew had been chatting to the New York Islanders cheerers during coverage of the team celebrating their 40th season in the NHL.
And while a jersey wearing reporter stood on the ice and spoke to one, the idea was that the others kept it entertaining by doing their stuff in the background.
Unfortunately for one ice girl she was a little too entertaining and has become an online hit -- after embarrassingly taking a tumble as the live camera followed her.
It looks like squirrels everywhere are making a bid for stardom! After this one went nuts on the BBC, another has made a primetime appearance in the US.
This time the furry critter in question decided to pop up during a televised baseball game between the Phillies and the Cardinals.
In the fifth inning, with the Cardinals ahead 3-2, the fame-hungry squirrel ran right in front of the home plate as a 94mph ball shot overhead.
And it turns out it wasn't the first time the squirrel had appeared at the stadium, in previous game he'd been seen outfield… next time he wants a go at hitting.
