Viewers grossed out as kid eats two flies during live TV interview

I think we've all had that awkward moment where you're talking to somebody and then a pesky fly decides to interrupt your conversation by landing directly on your face. Eager to look like we don't stink, most of use would quickly swot the fly away with as much discretion as possible... but not this kid.

During an interview with Australian news and current affairs talk show The Project, one young lad had not one, but two flies land on his face. Pretty embarrassing during a TV interview, right?

However, rather than waft them away, the hungry fella used his tongue (in what I can only describe as "lizard-like") to catch the insects and pull them into his mouth.

Check out the bizarre moment in the video below:

Anybody else getting flashbacks to when Boba Fett fell into the Sarlacc pit in Empire?

The young boy was joined by three other people, believed to be his sister and parents, as they spoke about Australia’s much-needed downpour following the recent bushfires in the country.

But, understandably, viewers were more focus on the flies than the fires, and promptly took to Twitter to express their feelings about what they had just witnessed.

Admiring the young boy's technique, Andy V tweeted: "Not his first rodeo, I see", while AJ Hard replied: "must have been born and raised by frogs".

And then there were a host of memes to commemorate the bizarre moment:

As they say, live TV can be a dangerous thing - you never know what's going to happen when the cameras are rolling.

One person who found this out recently was American TV host Wendy Williams, who was called out on Twitter after viewers heard her fart during a segment on The Wendy Williams Show.

Check out the moment below - Does she pass gas?

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to the suspect noise:

But, per Too Fab, Williams denied all accusations, saying in a segment on her show: "Let me tell you something right now, okay? I don’t lean over like this to release a fart, I lean over like this because it’s comfortable. If I sit [straight up] all the time, it’s heavy on my spine. I like to release my hips and lean. I’ve been doing this for 11 years on this show.

"By the sound of that fart, I would have had to go change my costume, I would have left a mark in the seat. I wouldn’t even save the costume, I’d throw it away. It’d be soiled beyond soiled-tivity."
