I think the anchors were laughing in relief that this guy was a good sport and goofing around on a live broadcast, and didn't hold up a giant sign saying "BLOW ME", or drop trou and moon the chopper, or fall to his knees and pretend to fellate the Hulk.

Good on this guy. That was above-average amusing for a live coverage anomaly.

That was a lot less obscene gesturey than I expected

Chicago is losing its game. Oh well.
 
2014-08-26 12:11:49 AM  
Not bad, since the guy only had a few seconds to think of something.
 
2014-08-26 12:31:48 AM  
You don't want to see him when he's angry

Chicago?  I was expecting him to shoot at the helicopter.

a particular individual: I am Groot.


That's a funny way of spelling "neckbearded virgin"
 
2014-08-26 06:09:23 AM  
Hulk, Splash!
 
2014-08-26 06:23:35 AM  
Wonder how long before it's reported stolen now
 
2014-08-26 07:00:30 AM  
Nice waterfront, why didn't the guy shoot down the damned drone?

yes.

I expected gunfire

OK, my second favorite news clip this year.... so far.
 
2014-08-26 08:44:12 AM  
There was a zoom OUT at the end of the clip. There was no zoom in.

//just bein' a pedantic ol' bastid

Or subby, the guy heard the helicopter and has the brain cells to figure out that it's a news chopper. Not really hard when you live in a city and news is going on.

or at least sling a manhole cover.

Forget it, Jake., it's Chicagotown.

Wow...that was HIL-AR-I-OUS!

I can see why the reporters were laughing so hysterically.

Did you see what that guy DID???

Oh...(tears)
 
2014-08-26 09:28:47 AM  
I wasn't able to believe what happened next.

He was probably watching TV and saw his backyard.  His neighbor was out in the driveway on the phone, most likely saying, "hey Peter!  Man, check out Channel 9".

All perfectly good ideas. What a missed opportunity!

The guy is absolutely hilarious.

Don't ever do this.  It makes him madder.

It can be hard to see just what exactly the news chopper has its camera pointed at though.  Those cameras are often just little ball gimbals attached to the nose, and they are often painted black.

yes.


You broke character, dude.

I'm sure CPD will see this and peg the guy for some outstanding warrants.
Ghetto rule no. 1  Never look up at a ghetto bird, remain calm and fine cover.

And yes that thing will get swiped soon, best anchor that down pronto.

I'll have to find a far less clever forum to post in.

Indeed. "Politics" is just one click to the left of this one.

Your herp derp and inability to provide witty sarcasm will make you an instant favorite over there.

GOOD DAY SIR.

The guy is lucky General Thunderbolt Ross wasn't flying that chopper. Otherwise he'd headbutt ol' Jade Jaws with it.

No joke. Why has that not been done?
