TV reporter pranks 'video bombers'

Watch: TV Reporter Pranks 'Video Bombers'

Tired of people interrupting his live shots, Chicago TV reporter Pat Tomasulo decided to invite video bombers at the 'Taste of Chicago' on-air and hit the unsuspecting festival-goers with embarrassing questions.

"We are back here live with Annie and Maggie," Tomasulo said to some festival-goers. "It's the latest beauty trend that's sweeping the nation, where women are not shaving any part of their body. You guys have been doing this for awhile?"

Stunned, one girl asked, "I thought we were talking about the Taste of Chicago?"

Tomasulo then told two 'video bombers' that they were talking about men's health. "A lot of people are embarrassed to do it, but when guys like you are out here wearing diapers it gives everyone else confidence to do the same. You know what I mean?"

The men were speechless.

To Tomasulo's surprise, one woman who wasn't speechless went on about women's health for quite some time.

After Tomasulo's pranks, it looks like people may think twice before jumping into live broadcasts.

What a dick. The guy eating ice cream or yogurt was just standing there, not doing anything other than enjoying his food. And this reporter makes his "under four inch club" remark. It was rude. What do they expect when they are filming at a live event? People will just clear the way to get out of their field of vision because he is with the media? They don't own the property, and people are there lawfully. If they get in his picture, so be it. What a dick.

Would this be one of those media types that suddenly thinks he owns the street because he's got a microphone and a camera?

I agree. It stopped being funny a long time ago.

People will never stop whining that the rest of us are jealous & should get a sense of humor .... SMH.

Speak for yourself. I'm jealous of Pat's quick thinking.

Far from it. Why do you think that the station let him air 2 days of this segment?

Why would he get fired? Those were taped interviews? If the network didn't like it the first day, they would not have showed more the second day.

a prankster should be hired by the news station to hide in box or in the crowd to "scare and run" anyone who photo bombs or heckles a reporter.
