Talk about the ultimate mane malfunction!

Erik Estrada, who starred on the hit 1980’s show CHIPs, wigged out at the 2011 Latin Grammy Awards during an interview with Univision – and his embarrassing moment was caught on camera.

During the red carpet interview, which was done in his native tongue of Spanish, the 62-year-old causally chats with the host about getting red carpet ready.

He then proceeds to tell her that he changed his hair color – and then shockingly adjusts his hairpiece for the camera.

“No, don’t do that to your wig!” exclaims the shocked host.
