There's viral video of an awkward morning news report from April in San Diego. They're covering an 'inflatable' festival, where people run through an inflatable obstacle course. And the reporter can't get his opening joke about 'inflation' to work, because the anchor back in the studio is caught off guard and won't play along.
The awkward San Diego news report about an inflatable obstacle course got worse and worse as it went on. The reporter caught the volunteers off guard with lame questions like "What kind of fun do you think you're gonna have today?" Then he interviewed "Mr. Whacky," the festival mascot.
