(SPOT.ph) The news is serious business, of course, but it isn't without its moments. Up there with unforgettable broadcasting bloopers—think Doris Bigornia's cats, Kuya Kim's tinapay, Mang Tani's Josie, Jiggy Manicad's tao—is the latest from PTV-4's Louisa Erispe. The reporter has gone viral online for a hilarious slip of the tongue while live for morning news program Rise and Shine Pilipinas on Wednesday, March 2. Best part? Erispe has confirmed on social media that she's still employed—making this unexpected bright spot a true guilt-free laugh trip.

PTV-4 reporter goes viral for funny news blooper
Erispe was covering Ash Wednesday live from Quiapo Church. Commenting on the physical dystancing of the folks hearing mass, she said "Makikita natin na kahit nasa labas sila ng tindahan" before immediately correcting it and saying "simbahan." She did her best to continue and keep it together, but she eventually had to take a moment to let out a cough-slash-laugh. Even the sign language interpreter ended up smiling.
And the laugh-trip continued back at the studio. The program cut to anchor Chi Atienza-Valdipenas who had her game-face on—before ending up laughing while thanking Erispe for her report. Cue another well-timed cut to the next part of the program!
The hilarious clip was uploaded to Facebook by an Elishua Balinton. As of writing, it has around one million views and more than 10,000 comments—and lots and lots of "Haha" reacts.
Meanwhile, the reaction to her blooper has reached Erispe herself. She took to Instagram on March 3 to confirm that she is indeed that "sabowg girl," emphasis on the "sabowg." Erispe claimed her mistake even further by cheekily adding that she was currently looking for a "tindahan na mapupuntahan."
Erispe took the opportunity to confirm to everyone that the fun was all good vibes, saying that "mahalaga employed pa rin ako."
