When TV interviews go very bad

While it’s not quite “Boom Goes the Dynamite,” this horribly awkward interview ranks up there as disastrous on-air situations go — for what should be routine broadcasting. I’m not sure who I feel more sorry for — Holly Hunter or the interviewer. The interviewer babbles like the ninth-grader who didn’t prepare for her speech in English class, and Holly Hunter seems positively nonplussed.

I had to stop at the second “Thanks for joining us” as my cringe-tolerance levels spiked.

Sounds like the interviewer can’t here the interviewee? I will try again later once I’ve returned to normal. Maybe watching in 3 second bursts?

A coworker sent me this a while back. All I could think of were Chris Farley’s old celebrity interview skits on SNL which all boiled down to a starstruck, “Do you remember when _________________?” “Yes.” “That was awesome!”

The scream at the end when she says ‘NBC’ is preiceless 🙂

Speaking of the Dynamite, ran across this explanation/followup on the guy from that clip.

“boom goes the dynamite” has to be one of the stupidest catchphrases ever. It is just so ‘Meh’.

This whole ‘phenomenon’ sounds like Bart Simpson’s “I didn’t do it”
