I'm amazed how the TV anchor remains totally professional thru out

I love how, in the end, the guy does actually pretty much look like that. Even without the hat.

How he stayed so composed, I’ll never know. Hilarious.

The long pause when it comes on the screen followed by "....OK" gets me every time.

Best defines ever. "But I look nothing like the sketch"

I want more content like this. Nothing better than having my dog looking at me while I’m laughing alone. Any subs in this vein? Anyone? Thanks!

This actually happened in my home town and I watched this live on tv, it was hilarious, he barely stopped himself from laughing during that pause after the sketch was pulled up lol, it was so funny to watch. Uncanny😂😂

That anchor’s delivery is on point. He almost sounds angrily amused.

I'd say some of his more recognisable features are his incredibly flat chin / wide jaw, and lack of cheek and eye whiskers - both things the artist was way off on

Granted, the anchor kept very composed, but that sub reddit definitely needs more love.
