Saturday Night Funny Video: Oblivious Local News Anchors

From Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, some embarrassing video from the NBC-owned TV station in Washington, DC during live coverage of the big snowstorm last weekend.

The WRC-TV newscast sought travel advice from a man identified as with the Virginia Department of Transportation. Kimmel marveled at how obvious it was that the man on the phone “was pulling a prank,” but the anchors “remained completely oblivious.”
