The Laugh For The Day: Video Shows CNN Reporter Freaking Out After Cicada Climbs On His Shoulder

This is just hilarious!

While CNN reporter Manu Raju was on a live shot, a cicada suddenly crawled up on his shoulder.

Yet, Raju freaked out instead of just playing it cool, started to use profanity, and waved his arms around in an attempt to make the bug leave his shoulder!

After the incident was seen by people online, they gave him a new nickname- Chief Cicada Correspondent.

Watch it here:

The story was covered by New York Post :

“A cicada crawled onto a reporter’s head during a live shot in Washington, as the insect’s once-in-a-generation coming out party continues to make headlines.

CNN reporter Manu Raju tweeted a clip of him being bugged by the unwanted visitor — which appears to be almost the same size as the knot on his tie — while filming a stand-up at the US Capitol Thursday.

The large insect can be seen crawling up Raju’s lapel and onto the back of his neck, before the political reporter takes notice and flicks the insect out of his hair while screaming out in profanity.

“Do I have more on me?” Raju asks onlookers, as he starts to regain his composure.

“Are they in my hair?,” he asks, before punctuating the exchange with more profanity, which was bleeped out.

“Where the f*** are the cicadas coming from?!” Raju exclaims as he looks around the building’s rotunda in the 43-second clip.”

The Hill added:

“CNN’s Chief Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju on Thursday shared a clip in which he’s interrupted by a cicada crawling on the back of his head.

In the 43-second clip shot in the Capitol — which may be terrifying to some viewers — Raju is seen asking when he will be on air when a large cicada crawls onto the back of his neck.

Raju quickly reaches back and takes the insect off, spewing off a string of expletives.

Cicada season has recently begun with the noisy insects swarming over much of the eastern half of the U.S.

Cicadas spend the first 17 years of their life underground before emerging to breed and lay eggs. This most recent generation of cicadas has been dubbed “Brood X.””

This was not the first time people online watched a CNN reporter got scared.
