Russian Dog Steals Reporter's Mic on Live TV in Viral Clip

A Moscow weather reporter's live broadcast was interrupted when a curious Golden Retriever named Martin decided to steal her microphone and make a run for it. 
Nadezhda Serezhkina can be seen telling viewers that spring had finally arrived in the Russian capital before dog runs up and snatches her mic away, likely mistaking it for a chew toy.
She is eventually able to chase him down and get her microphone back — and gives the pup his own exclusive on-air interview. 
The clip quickly went viral worldwide, proving that sometimes it pays off to be playful and daring.
