FAIL: WHEN LOCAL NEWS ANCHORS ACT

FOX5 Las Vegas put together a behind-the-scenes video of Kurt Busch filming promotional spots for the station. As this footage proves, local TV news personalities have no discernable skills outside of reading teleprompters. These folks somehow manage to make Kurt Busch look like Sir Laurence Olivier.

Not everyone can be ESPN. The Worldwide Leader remains the gold standard when it comes to commercial skits. In the videos below, note how the anchors do not resort to over-animated hand gestures or classic "I’m-the-straight-man!" frowny faces. I demand an Inside the Actor’s Studio episode starring Kenny Mayne, Stuart Scott and Charley Steiner.
