I would have told the reporter to get the cord away from the tower immediately, but the guy who built it is probably a nice guy. After the fact, I would have strangled the reporter with his mic cord, especially after that "hey - whatta ya gonna do" gesture at the end.
Oh no! Poor kid.
i think it was set up. sorry.
Um...I haven't played Jenga in a long time, but I think the reporter lost.
You could be right, MommaT. Nothing to be sorry about.M - HA!!
I agree with MommaT.
You could almost see his dreams being crushed...
yeah, I almost never call fake, but I gotta call fake on this one. It looked totally planned.
ok - I'm 30 sec in and I don't think I can watch the rest!!
When was this? 1980? I haven't seen a mic with a cord on it since my oldest kid's Fisher Price tape recorder died. In 1991. If it isn't fake, that poor kid needs some cookies or a hooker or something. Bless his heart.
It was a set-up according to the creator's web page:"It was demolished by stringing a wire through the bottom of it which was hidden out of view of the camera that was filming the event. When 'interviewer' Mike Roy stepped around it with his microphone cord the wire was pulled to make it collapse." (http://cara-jo.net/bryant/)
I'm relieved to know that was fake...if it was real I'm pretty sure reporter-dude would have been nursing a broken nose. Or worse. :D
PHOTOSHOP!I don't care if it's fake, it was funny.
