Here's a viral video of an awkward Dave Scott, morning news reporter from San Diego. He's covering an 'inflatable' festival, where people run through an inflatable obstacle course and he 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.
Then it just got worse from there. Dave 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.
