That's a major oops, and those always seem to happen when there's an audience.
It might be a bit embarrassing, but a little stuff up and mea culpa is good for the soul. it's stops us from looking down our long noses at other people.

Actually, I have always found it interesting to see how people react when they do come a bit of a cropper, it reveals a bit of a person's character.

As my old dad used to say 'never forget humility and humour, it will see you well'.
