An Arkansas man earned a moment of social media notoriety Tuesday night after taking a tumble on the air during NBC’s live election coverage.
Dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, the unidentified man edged his way into the frame and glanced into the camera before falling down and drawing an “Oh no!” from the NBC reporter.
The man popped up smiling and unharmed, sparking jokes and speculation that it was a calculated move on Twitter. See some reactions below.

Watching NBC. Man on the street interview. Dude falls over trying to stay in the shot.
“Um … we’ve got a voter form Arkansas here …”
