While it's not exactly clear what NBC newsman Mike Seidel was doing when the network went for the live shot, we know what it looks like.

Since Seidel's back was turned towards the camera, there's no definitive answer as to what he was doing, but it sure looks like he was relieving himself in the bushes.

We've probably all been in the position of when you just can't hold it any longer. Given the choice between potentially being caught relieving yourself or facing the camera with a big wet spot on your pants, I think we'd all choose to 'water the bushes' and hope we finished before going live on the air.
