Lester Holt and Natalie Morales Pound Vodka on Air, Nearly Throw Up

Natalie Morales and Lester Holt tried to get into the Olympic spirit yesterday.

By getting into some Russian spirits. Literally!

The Today hosts were reporting live from Sochi yesterday when they decided to try the host nation's "favorite drink," vodka.

Morales downed her shot fairly easily, but Holt delayed and delayed and delayed when it came to doing his. And when he finally pounded that beverage down? Let's just say this anchor is far removed from his college days...

Watch the funny footage now and then compare it to other live news snafus over the past couple years:
