This week has been a great week for crazy local news segments, and on Wednesday, the news team over at Detroit’s Fox News 2 accidentally made the term "hump day" sound really dirty. At first, the team was putting together a nice little segment talking about Hump Day when one of the reporters got a little too vivid with her hump day vocabulary. Check out the amusing local news segment, below.
It was just a usual day in the office on Wednesday, May 6. Local news anchors Amy Adams, Jay Towers and Alan Longstreet were padding the broadcast with chats about the middle of the week and the fact that it just so happened to be hump day when one anchor made a pretty amusing mistake. Apparently, in Detroit, the weather is always something worth talking about and Adams, trying to connect “hump day” with the weather, made the following verbal blunder.
Maybe we’ll have a dry hump day?
Clearly, the news anchorwoman has no idea that she just accidentally blurted out a phrase with multiple meanings, and in fact it takes her co-anchor, Jay Towers, a second to even catch her blunder. He starts responding to her actual question before he has an aha moment. His facial expression is incredibly entertaining once he realizes what his co-anchor has said, but I love how he just turns toward her and stutters out the word, “oh.” That look is one of the funniest I’ve ever seen a news anchor make, and I wish the camera had been front and center for the shot.
From flubs come priceless onscreen moments. Luckily, Andrews doesn’t seem too bent out of shape about the “oops” moment. She later took to Twitter about the incident, spouting some sage wisdom following the amusing blooper segment.
Everyone makes mistakes, even those who work on live TV, and those goofs hardly ever cause trouble. That was true when model Manuela accidentally gave away a car on The Price is Right a few weeks ago and when an Arizona news outlet accidentally listed temperatures in the 2000s in the Phoenix area. It’s only when controversial things are stated purposefully that people can get miffed. Here’s to hoping none of the latter are in the Detroit news team’s future.
