VIDEO: Commentator loses his voice


Losing your voice seems to be something that only ever happened to Joe in Neighbours or that weird kid in school who was clearly doing it for attention. But here's video proof that it can often happen to real people in horribly embarrassing situations.

While covering a basketball match, the Spanish commentator's voice started to take a turn for the worse. Clearly deprived of air and water in his torturous recording booth, he starts to splutter and the words come out in an increasingly sinister croak.

By the very end, his booth has turned into a prison and his hysterical ramblings suggest that he's been possessed by an evil basketball-loving demon.

It's scary stuff but he deserves points for getting this excited about a basketball game.

He's not the only one. Check out this compilation of 10 commentators who have let their excitement get the better of them:
