An unexpected moment on ‘The Today Show‘ has us bugging out.

During a live segment for the morning show, NBC correspondent Mark Potter was reporting on the Gulf oil spill when he swallowed a huge fly that flew into his mouth! After choking up a bit and being a little stunned, the news reporter just smiled, took a sip of water and kept on reporting. What a pro!

Never one to miss an opportunity, the ‘Today’ hosts joked about the unfortunate incident afterward and NBC even provided a clip of the surprise snack attack in slo-mo.

“That’s what you call having breakfast on the fly,” quipped co-host Matt Lauer.
