“Well, a testicular eclipse is probably not something you had on your bingo card, but here we are. As you likely know by now, Monday was the big day for the Solar eclipse, and many states in the US were in the path of the “total eclipse,” as were other countries around the world. In fact, folks near Torreón, Mexico, got to experience “totality” for one of the longest periods of time, lasting 4 minutes and 28 seconds, according to NASA.

Wikipedia explains that the solar eclipse of April 8, 2024, was a total solar eclipse visible within a band covering parts of North America, from Mexico to Canada, and crossing the contiguous United States. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, obscuring the Sun. So, the entire world came together, sporting goofy sunglasses, and gazing up at the sky. However, one local news organization in Mexico got sidelined by the eclipse frenzy. Instead of showing what they thought was incredible footage of the planetary show, they got trolled into airing a clip of a man’s testicles.

You can’t make this stuff up…

Here’s what Collin Rugg, co-founder of “Trending Politics” shared on X about this hilarious troll:

NEW: Mexican media outlet RCG Media plays video of a man’s testicles thinking they were showing the eclipse.

Someone’s getting fired.

Shortly after the image displayed for all their viewers to see, the production team quickly removed it.

The hosts were clearly disturbed as the two women sat with stunned looks on their faces.

Below is the English translation from Infobae:

During the recent broadcast of the “24/7” news program on RCG Media, viewers expected to enjoy images of the 2024 Solar Eclipse, but instead, they witnessed an unusual and controversial incident.

And while millions around the world are amazed by this solar event, a peculiar moment was witnessed in the media news from Coahuila, in Mexico.

A video sent by a user, which was intended to show the astronomical phenomenon, ended up exposing the prankster’s testicles instead.

In the clip that is widely circulated on the Internet you can see how the host of the broadcast begins to list the cities and municipalities where the phenomenon was notably visible:

“Durango, Gómez Palacio, Lerdo, Nasas also in the municipality of Durango, Torreón, Monclova, Muzquiz, where your family is, Piedras Negras and Acuña, this in the state of Coahuila…”, he said while the screen showed transmitted to the air the image of a light “eclipsed” by the private parts of a man.

The look on the reporter’s faces is just priceless. The puns were flying fast and furious style. Here’s what folks online had to say about the hilarious blunder:

“Having worked in media my entire life— I can only imagine how much screaming there was in the locker room… ”

“That was pretty ballsy of them to air that. It’s just nuts!”

“Maybe the media guy heard they wanted the “moon” and got a little confused.”

“Somebody really dropped the ball on this one.”

“Folks, trust the Mainstream Media!”

“Moments when you are trying to provide some “unprecedented coverage,” but ended up with an “unintended exposure” instead”

“Hahaha nutseclipse ”

“Is that what the scientists call “peak totality”?”

These days, there’s nothing quite as amusing as seeing the smug news media getting trolled and mocked by everyday folks.
