We don’t know if this classifies as lifetime imitating art, however the early morning news report on community NBC affiliate WGBA devolved into a scene straight outside of “Anchorman” today — and thankfully the footage has made it onto YouTube.
Meteorologist Brian Niznansky fell victim to a attractive ingenious newsroom prank after the exhibit’s director slipped the border, “I like lamp” into his teleprompter notes. Apparently, Niznansky’s dedication to reading whatever appears on the prompter rivals Will Ferrell’s character Ron Burgundy in the movie (although the classic border belongs to Steve Carell).
Have a laugh at how Niznansky’s co-anchor reacts to the prank’s utter success above and catch the original scene from “Anchorman” below.
