Weatherman Brad Willis has awkward moment on live TV as he reacts to big bug.

You can always expect the unexpected on live TV, especially with weathermen for some reason, and it is usually an embarrassing experience. The latest awkward moment comes courtesy of FOX 5 from over the weekend when San Diego weatherman Brad Willis encountered a threatening insect:

"Ahhhh, oooh — what is that?" Willis says as he ducks to avoid the big bug. "That's because it's hot outside, stuff like that happens.

"Was that live? Are we live?"

Yes, Brad, you are live.

"Oh brother."

Yep, another live TV embarrassing moment to add to the long list that weathermen have had to endure over the years. Such as the spider showing up unexpectedly on the screen (a common occurrence) for one meteorologist in studio or the Australian weatherman who passed out while giving a live report aboard a stunt plane when the pilot obliged by doing eight G-Forces.

The FOX 5 anchor didn't flinch, quipping, "Brad either got attacked by a large bug or small drone, I'm not sure which. He needs to shake it off, though."

He might be able to shake it off but will he ever live it down?
