There is something completely and utterly hilarious about news anchors losing their cool on camera. It’s probably because they are supposed to be pulled together at all times, regardless of what they’re reading or what is happening on set. But one anchor just lost it for the best possible reason. It was because the meteorologist appeared not as himself but as Ferdinand the Mystical Unicorn to give the weather report, which he did. And it did not disappoint.
It happened on Global Calgary, a Canadian news station. The meteorologist, a man named Jordan Witzel, came to work last week in a Halloween costume. But it wasn’t just any costume. It was a very tight white unicorn outfit that didn’t leave much to the imagination. Jordan then proceeded to prance around on camera in the eye-catching outfit, while the anchor cracked up, dried her eyes, and made some hilarious commentary.
“I didn’t even bother shaving,” the unicorn said. “I thought maybe it would add to the whole thing.” The anchor, through her hysterics, said back, “Sure, that’s where the focus is.” It’s all quite the scene and makes us wish, just a bit, that we didn’t have to wait a year for Halloween to come around again.
Check out what happened when Ferdinand the Unicorn arrived on set.
