Leave it to us here at Mandatory to take a video that is going viral and turn the focus on the lovely anchor. But hey, it’s what we do — we make our folks proud.
If you haven’t seen it by now, a Russian news anchor named Ilona Linarte was delivering the news recently when out of nowhere a very friendly black lab crashes her live broadcast. And this of course freaks out Linarte because, according to her, she’s a “cat lady.” Lady, dogs are better.
“I’ve got a dog here,” Linarte says in Russian. “What is this dog doing in the studio?”
No one comes to her aid, and a viral moment is born. Check out the video below.
That Russian Anchor Who Was Interrupted By A Dog On Live TV Is Actually Quite The Looker
And wouldn’t you know it, but Linarte is actually quite attractive. Now it’s only fair we prove that by showing you some photos off of her Instagram.
Not too shabby at all.
