There is a thing about apples and Apple - they are both expensive. But it's hard to confuse the two of them. However, that's exactly what a newscaster in Pakistan did and now she is a butt of many a joke.
She had a guest on her show who was talking about Apple's business. He said their turnover is probably bigger than Pakistan's entire budget but he didn't mention 'company' Apple.
Confusing it with the fruit, she said:
Ji sir, maine suna tha ki ek seb ki itni daam hai (Yes, I know even one apple is so expensive).
Things got really awkward after that.
The man clarified that he was talking about the company and not the fruit, and a lot of flinching and apologising followed.

Now these things take seconds to get viral on the internet and so it doesn't come as a surprise that the video has been shared by hundreds of people already.
Hats off to the man!! What control!! Had I been there would have probably fallen off my seat laughing 😂— Siddhartha Das (@sidharthone) July 4, 2019
Ye Video dekh ke ghutno me dard ho gya. Aapke news wale toh humare desh ke journalists se bhi jyada zehreele nikle. Vo bandi 2 min aur Apple ki baat karti rehti toh uss bande ne toh aise hi emotional heart attack se mar jana tha 😌🙏— Jagat Joon (@JagatJoon) July 4, 2019

On a serious note, the way Pakistan economy is headed, soon apple (fruit) trade in US might be greater than entire GDP of Pakistan. Don't laugh, this is serious.— Arun Kumar Singh (@AKS9955) July 5, 2019
Chalta hai yaar. In India also that lady anchor pronounced XI Jinping as 11 Jinping😂😂😂— Mandar Desai (@MandarDesai16) July 6, 2019
