‘Today Show’ Anchors Go Viral; Make Asses Of Themselves
In a desperate bid for ratings, The Today Show has bequeathed this week ”Today goes viral” week. Since the entire staff is over the age of twenty, they do not grasp the meaning of going viral. You cannot force or will something to become viral. Trust me, I have tried on many occasions, and all I hear back from the internet are crickets.
Dear Meredith Vieira: whatever they are paying you, it is not enough. There is no amount of money worth the humiliation of trying to carry a tune when you are not capable of doing so. She knows it is shit. She’s all, “Let’s just get this crap over with.”
If you must, watch the painful rendition of the Today Show cast (Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, Ann Curry, and Al Roker) trying to copy Mike Tompkins’ version of Taio Cruz’s song “Dynamite.”
If you are out of the loop, Tompkins became an overnight sensation on YouTube when he recreated “Dynamite” using only mouth and voice sounds. He was even game enough to come on The Today Show and coach these old geezers a bit. It didn’t help.
Skip to the 6:00 mark to see the real embarrassing stuff begin.
