Prepare to cringe: TV news team fails at appealing to teens with slang

Can we stop straight-laced TV news team from using slang to appeal to teenagers? Like seriously, stop this right now.  It’s gone viral and it’s embarrassing to say the least. Professional adults agreed to say these things in front of a camera and try to be cool to the kids. They tried, and they failed.

The Washington Post reported earlier this week the TV station behind this WTOL only intended for the clip to be “Web only.” according to sports anchor sports Jordan Strack, adding “It never hit the air”. But if it got online, it may as well been on the air, right?

The unfiltered freak-out of the team to this clip of ‘Vice Live’ is incredible. Some NSFW language.
