This is Your Moment, TV News Troll!

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Wed, Sep 4, 2013 at 1:59 PM

One thing I deeply miss about the Mercury offices being across the street from KATU News? Blowing our air horn whenever they attempted to do an outdoor live shot. But the sad thing about being a TV news troll (those people who scoot up behind reporters during live shots and scream "WooooooooHOOOOOO!!" and flash devil horns) is that the camera never focuses on THEM. Perhaps they actually have something of import to say! For example, this foreign guy who interrupts this foreign newscast—but instead of the camera turning away, this news team lets the troll have his day in the sun.*

*So what's he saying? Who knows? However, he does speak the international language of "fart noise."
