BBC Middle East correspondent Quentin Somerville was caught on video seemingly getting high on accident after standing a little too close to more than 8 tons of burning narcotics in Afghanistan.
“Burning behind me is eight-and-a-half tonnes of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics,” Somerville reported before suddenly laughing uncontrollably.
Watch the video via the Telegraph:
Somerville later posted the blooper video on Twitter, but had to delete it due to copyright issues. “Dear tweeps, it’s been a year of bullets & bloodshed,” he wrote on Twitter.
The BBC confirmed in a statement that the video was “filmed four years ago.”
“It was filmed four years ago – it hasn’t been seen before and was never broadcast,” the statement added.
