Watch: ABC cuts to unsuspecting ESPN anchors during interview

Sunday October 4th, 2015

After Clemson’s 24–22 upset victory over No. 6 Notre Dame, things got weird on ABC.

Right in the middle of head coach Dabo Swinney’s emotional postgame interview, the network cut to two unsuspecting SportsCenter anchors who were silently preparing for their show. 

All sound was lost, and an entire nation watched two men look up information on their mobile devices.

The move came after Swinney had finished thanking God, and his father.

ESPN senior director of PR Keri Potts apologized for what she called “an error in TV transmission.”

Chris Fowler passed along his apologies as well.

ESPN posted full video of Swinney’s postgame interview early Sunday morning.
