We're all too aware of the perils of live television. Remember the baby who interrupted her father's very important piece about South Korea?

Or how about the dog who managed to gatecrash a news broadcast in Russia? And spare a thought for that poor A-level student.

Well, a man who was protesting against Brexit live on BBC News has managed to turn the tables and make his appearance on TV a nightmare for the director.

During an interview outside the Houses of Parliament on Theresa May's Brexit draft, a man appears at approximately 11:44 am holding two anti-Brexit signs.

What usually occurs in these situations is that the director will simply order the camera operator to change the shot to not show the protestor.

Except this protestor seems to have a bit of knowledge about camera shots and how they transition, which leads to a hilarious game of chase on live television.

This was originally captured by Thomas Colson of Business Insider and has subsequently gone viral.

It's safe to say that people are loving it.

It appears that this is regular Brexit protestor Steve Bray, who is outside Parliament on a daily basis, so he's probably had a lot of time to study a live TV broadcast in the past two years or so.

No matter what side of the debate you are on, we think we can all agree that this is the best thing to be associated with Brexit in the past 24 hours. ​
