BBC reporter gets high while filming a segment
"Burning behind me is eight and a half tons of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics..."
That's BBC's Middle East correspondent Quentin Sommerville trying ...and failing... to report from Afghanistan in front of a giant pile of burning drugs.
"Burning behind me..."
Almost...give it another shot
"Quick! Quick quick quick! We just need one more."
Drats. That actually happened four years ago - but Sommerville decided to share it with his Twitter followers only recently as a "Christmas present."
We love reporters who get really into their segments. It makes them more credible...and really funny sometimes.
CNN aired a series of segments on marijuana legalization in Colorado. Randi Kaye was bold enough to step up and get right in the action...
Anderson Cooper: "So Randi, I gotta ask, how extensive was your research in the back of that limo?"
Randi Kaye: "You know, Anderson it was top notch. We did very extensive research I have to tell you. I wasn't thinking right. I couldn't remember some of the questions in the interview... And if you saw those joints, I don't know if you could seem them in the video there, but they were like the size of small cannons... I think I need to come home. I think I need to come home.
