BBC’s Quentin Somerville was covering a story in Afghanistan near a pile of burning narcotics.

“Burning behind me is eight-and-a-half tons of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics,” stated Somerville, who began to giggle …

Somerville, a respected reporter who has braved gunfire in the Middle East, tried a second and third take, but kept laughing (also known as “corpsing”), reports

Somerville reportedly tweeted the video with the caption, “Dear tweeps, it’s been a year of bullets & bloodshed. You’ve earned a xmas laugh, at my expense.”
