When TV interviews go very bad

August 23, 2007

Article Text

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. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/06/13/earlyshow/leisure/celebspot/main701289.shtml

    "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"
