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.

"Ha, ha," Estrada replies laughing. "I do it to scare people."

Needless to say, the interview ended on an awkward note.
