Wouldn't You Like to Know, Weather Boy?
A Nevada meteorologist was doing a live shot at a place that sells fireworks and he asked a kid standing nearby what are the best kind of fireworks to buy.
The kid's response was Internet gold. It's been seen millions of times and has been turned into numerous music tracks.
But it was a fake.
The kid is the son of the meteorologist. Not sure if they planned the response but they clearly had staged the moment to make it seem real.
After the kid's snarky remark, the meteorologist asks, "Where are your parents?'
Should the meteorologist be punished for creating a piece of fiction? Does this incident undermine his credibility?
Or does it not matter? It's just a fluff piece for the Fourth of July, you know?
