Pakistani anchor gets trolled for confusing Apple Inc with fruit in viral video


A Pakistani anchor confused Apple Inc with fruit during the live programme recently and became a laughing stock on social media.


A video clip of the incident went viral after Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat posted it on Twitter. In the July 4 incident, the anchor can be seen chatting with a panellist who was talking about the American tech giant, but the former thought the latter was referring to an apple (fruit).

In the clip, while talking about Pakistan’s financial conditions, the panellist said: “Alone Apple’s business amounts to more than the whole of Pakistan’s annual budget.”

Assuming that the panellist was talking about the fruit, the TV anchor said: “Yes, I have heard that even one apple is very expensive.” At this point, the startled panellist corrected the anchor, saying: “We are talking about Apple phones here, not the fruit.”

Retweets, likes and of course, a hilarious discussion followed after the video surfaced on Twitter. “An “Apple” a day keeps brain away,” read a tweet while another said, “Ok now moving away from goats, cows , oil well next buzzword is apple…”
