South African Sports Show Opening Is So Awful It's Actually Pretty Amazing
And boom goes the dynamite.
Matt Yoder of Awful Announcing happened upon this brilliant video of a sports show gone very, very wrong. The video, originally posted over at Live Leak, is supposedly the first couple of minutes of a new sports show in South Africa.
From the looks of it, it's very new.
If you get uneasy about awkward moments or cringe when things get a tad uncomfortable, please look away. For the rest of you, click play and enjoy a reminder that your day could be worse. In fact, you could be one of these two hosts.
Even Brian Collins feels better about his own highlight reel:
It all starts with very loud and energetic music with a "Game On!" graphic, and fans watching from home have to be giddy. Hell yeah, game on! Let's watch some awesome cricket highlights!
That's when we are introduced to our two protagonists in this exciting tale of a show doomed to fail.
From the start you can tell that neither wants to be there and both immediately forgot everything they were supposed to do. The one on the left looks like she forgot what sports were and possibly what she is supposed to do with the hands she suddenly realizes are attached to her wrists.
That's when we get our first bit of awkward silence, which is always the best kind of silence. I think we can all agree on that.
Now we are promised the highlights of a "fantastic" match. They're so fantastic that they don't even need voice-overs. Who knew cricket could speak so well for itself?
Go ahead and enjoy the rest of the show, which ends with something we never thought we would experience: sports fans rooting for the commercial break.
