A professor was left red faced after a weird adult site showed up on his big screen during a lecture.

A photo of the embarrassing moment was uploaded to the Internet and it quickly went viral.

The incident occurred at a business school in Zurich, Switzerland. The professor, who was described as “popular” by the school president Rolf Blitz, forgot to disconnect a cable that connected his laptop computer to a classroom projector after teaching a lesson.

He proceeded to visit an adult site and search for videos containing amputees. His search results were projected to the entire class.

The teacher was fired after a student submitted a photo of the moment to a local newspaper. The teacher said that he was mortified by his own actions and admitted his mistake, a school spokesperson said.

The professor had been working at the school for forty years and had never caused any problems before this incident, the school said in a statement.
