The live broadcast was interrupted by a malfunctioning fire alarm that all the producing tricks in the world couldn't hide from finding its way on air.

Williams, veteran newsman that he is, tried to carry on with the show and deliver the news in his typical stoic yet amiable fashion, but it gets hard not to laugh at the ridiculousness of his situation. Even he goes through the motions of laughing at the problem, then growing frustrated at the fact that  is just goes on and on and on.

Of course, blunders like this live on forever on Youtube, so we can all laugh with Williams at the obnoxious fire alarm that won't quit. In the first clip, the alarm goes off with a variety of different intonations and everyone seems to think it's just a temporary issue that will be remedied in no time. However, by the second clip compilation, it's just a long ringing drone that has Williams look like he wants to punch something. Enjoy.
