    That's hilarious. I like how he assures us that he'll be better prepared next time...

    The look on his face when he finds out who they think he is is priceless.

    Yeah, I just watched the video for the first time. I also love the way he goes "it's a big surprise that this judgement has fallen on me". I think he coped pretty well, all things considered!

    @ his reaction.

    Oh my God that's priceless. And then he just responds with "Good morning".



    The guy is just answering the questions so randomly, but he sounded reasonably knowledgeable. It kind of shows you can BS your way out of almost everything, even being a professional on a news report.
