MelGoesOnTour: Clearly an old clip. Does anyone know what station it's from?

FilmBELOH20: darch: The camera falling over is comedy gold. GOLD./JerryI'm trying to figure out why the reporterette didn't say anything to the camera guy as she stared at it going over. I'm also trying desperately to figure out why the camera guy had it set up to dutch angle. It was a really smooth fall, and if you watch it, it's spinning on an anchor point, not falling over as if the tripod fell. But tripod heads don't go sideways like that unless he had it set for a dutch or didn't have it screwed down to the bowl well enough.
Vegan Meat Popsicle: I lost it when the camera fell over and the reporter didn't even blink as it went. It's like a Kids In the Hall sketch without the sketch.
EddieMoscone: The camera didn't "fall over". That was when the cameraman took it off his shoulder when it became obvious to him, and the reporter, that they weren't going live anytime soon, hence the lack of reaction when the reporter saw the camera drop. I know that because I've seen that same shot from inside the control room, though typically when I saw it it was after a live shot, and not during.It's funny to watch video of that kind of colossal catastrophe after that fact, but it sucks royally when you're in the middle of it.
