A CNN reporter faced the shock of his life on Thursday after realizing a huge cicada was crawling on his neck while preparing for a broadcast.

The comedic moment was captured on camera, although it was not broadcast, with reporter Manu Raju sharing a cutscene of his close encounter with the bug on Thursday night.

Raju, CNN’s chief congressional correspondent, spoke to producers without realizing that the cicada was starting to climb into his shirt and suit – even though the creature was captured on camera.

You could see Raju flinch when he realized the bug was on his skin and wiped it away with his left hand.

He then asks his producer if he has more crickets with him while someone laughs in the background.

“I can’t see anything anymore,” someone replies as Raju curses again, clearly shocked by the bug’s appearance.

He went on to ask if there was anything in his hair before swearing again, saying, ‘Yes, that’s right’ as he stared at the cicada he swept away.

‘Where do all those damn crickets come from? Wow … thank goodness. I was like, ‘What’s that? There is something, ” he says.

Raju then went on and said, “I think I’m safe from crickets.”

The next day, Raju appeared on CNN’s New Day program to discuss the creepy cicada incident.

During the performance, Raju revealed that a few minutes earlier, another cicada had fallen from his pocket.

“There was another cicada that reportedly fell out of my pocket, and it happened while I was waiting to move on,” Raju said.

He added, ‘Our producer, Morgan Rimer, said,’ A cicada just fell out of your pocket ‘and I saw it on the floor and I was a little dumbfounded.’

While Raju expressed disgust at the feel of the crickets, his twins are big fans and enjoyed the video.

“All they do is talk about it,” Raju said of his twins’ interest in crickets. “They’ve put them to their hands, they’re on the cicadas committee of inquiry in their pre-K class at school, so I can tell you they love the video.”

Chances are, more viral cicada moments will emerge in the coming weeks as Brood X crickets appear for the first time in 17 years.

The National Centers for Environmental Information report that spring 2021 is the brood’s chance to surface and mate.
