Video Face Off III: TV Newsmen Behaving Badly

In our occasional series, we post two videos that are somehow similar but profoundly different. Today, two anchor-host interactions gone terribly wrong.


Eva: Reporters flub their lines all the time, but the anchor's Uh Oh Face is an American classic. Best though, is his sheepish attempt to gloss over the incident by citing "technical difficulties."

Ian: From now on, whenever anything goes wrong anywhere, I want that guy to pop up and make his Uh Oh Face.


Eva: [makes Uh Oh Face].

Ian: I just wish there was a followup video showing what happened when the reporter made it back into the office later that day.
