As you may have heard already, KHOU 11 chief meteorologist David Paul went very viral in the last 48 hours because he got the case of hiccups. The video has now been featured on NPR, the Houston Press, Irish Independent, Gawker, TV Spy, The Mirror, Deadspin and Roula and Ryan on 104.1 KRBE (I heard CNN too).
At this point, I have to ask myself, should I even post this since it is all over the world? Should I even bother. The answer is yes, just to report on how far the clip has gone.
If you read my blog with any regularity, you know I link to funny TV news bloopers about once a week. And honestly, if this hadn't been in Houston, I probably would not have posted it. Paul did a good job getting through the problem and none of it was really that funny.
Now if Dr. Neil Frank had jumped out from behind the chroma key with former Houston mayor Kathy Whitmire and tried to scare the hiccups out of Paul, that would be funny. Maybe it would just be me though.
