Australian news report accidentally uses 'huge penis' meme in weather segment
The internet is a wondrous place, as was evidenced when one x-rated meme made its way to Australia and landed a spot in the evening weather report.
With Win News in Ballarat, Victoria, asking for viewer submissions of the wild weather punters have filmed on their phones, as the region is battered by strong storms, producers clearly didn’t cotton onto the meme buried in one clip.
As the presenter threw to one submission in particular, some very eagle-eyed viewers realised one cheeky chap had Photoshopped quite an explicit meme in the background to look like a lightning strike.
If you’ve been keeping up with the cool kids on the block, you may have noticed a meme doing the sounds of a rather well-endowed naked man, sitting on a bed and glancing down the camera with his, er, member on full-frontal show.
Since resurfacing earlier this year, it’s been dubbed everything from ‘Wood sitting on a bed’ – owing to the name the now-deceased porn star was given by the internet (his real name is Wardy Joubert III) – to ‘huge penis meme’.
What more can we say? The internet is a weird place.
Anyway, Win soon deleted the offending clip from its social media page, but ofcourse it had been snapped up by fans, with reporter Cameron Wilson sharing it for posterity.
We thank him for that.
In the blink and you’ll miss it moment, Wood is now in the sky, as an outline of what is quite clearly the meme illuminated as lightning strikes a car park.
The outline of Wood really remains on the retinas, doesn’t it?
The thing is, though, viewers weren’t even mad as they all had a little giggle about it on Twitter afterwards.
Clearly a spot of entertainment, while there’s not much else to do, one mused: ‘TBH I think it’s easy to miss given that @WIN_TV produces so many news bulletins – and it gave us all a laugh so not complaning!’
Other fans thought this was the glorious work of Mother Nature, as another noted: ‘seeing in the comments that this is likely edited and not just an incredibly beautiful natural coincidence, as i had naively taken it to be, is heartbreaking.’
As one rather cheekily suggested it would be ‘quite the downpour’ another felt for the poor sod who uploaded the clip to the news bulletin: ‘someone’s about to lose their job and we need to start a gofundme for them immediately.’
While it’s clear producers weren’t looking out for an outline of a large, naked man and his penis as they surveyed the clip for broadcast, the image flashes up so quickly you have to cut them some slack for missing it.
Rest assured calls for viewer submissions may be put on hold for the time being…
