The person who was responsible for the embarrassing error in the BBC’s coverage of Liverpool’s FA Cup match against Wolves at home has been identified.
A YouTuber who goes by the name Jarvo69, also known as BMWJarvo, went live and streamed the stunt to thousands of viewers. He talked about how they managed to tape a phone to the back of the BBC set so that it could play the explicit audio when they called it.
Lineker, host of Match of the Day, took to Twitter to explain what was causing the noises, writing: We discovered that this was taped to the set’s back.
It was quite amusing in terms of sabotage.” In the BBC’s coverage of the match, Lineker was not the only person who found the incident funny.
Background On Tuesday, the sounds of a fake movie playing on the set disrupted the BBC’s coverage of Wolverhampton’s FA Cup Round of 32 matchup with Liverpool.
On the set, female moans that were as loud as they were explicitly sexual were heard while former international striker Gary Lineker was interviewing two consultants, Paul Ince and Danny Murphy, about the upcoming match.
“Danny, can you please stop making that noise?”, Lineker ridiculed his interviewer’s challenge at first, barely managing to contain his amusement.
After a pre-game interview with Reds coach Jürgen Klopp, the noises continued, and Lineker handed over to Alan Shearer, a former player in the much quieter commentary booth.
Lineker went on to say, “Someone is sending something to someone’s phone; I don’t know if you hear it at home.”
However, a few minutes into the game, the announcer took a picture of a cell phone and captioned it with the following three amusing emojis: “Well, we found this taped to the back of the set.” Very amusing sabotage.”
The episode generated a lot of laughter on social media, but the BBC, which is very serious and sometimes strict, didn’t get as many laughs. The BBC issued an apology in a statement if the noises “offended” viewers.
It continued, “We are investigating to determine what happened.”
