BBC journalist gets high while doing report next to burning narcotics

This un-aired video of a reporter getting high while on the job has gone viral, and we can see why - it's hilarious.

You know something is wrong when the normally serious Quentin Sommerville begins to laugh uncontrollably while taping a report on confiscated drugs.

The BBC reporter is barely able to get out the words: "Burning behind me is eight-and-a-half tons of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics."

Then he totally gets the giggles. He's unable to finish his report despite several takes, reports Perez Hilton.

The footage is actually four years old, but Sommerville posted it again to Twitter as a holiday prank, writing: "Dear tweeps, it's been a year of bullets & bloodshed. You've earned a xmas laugh, at my expense."

The BBC has since removed the video, reportedly due to copyright issues, but copies have since gone viral. As for Sommerville, he still has his job despite getting high at work.
