Awkward! Election Reporter Tongue-Tied Over Will.i.am
We’re not quite certain who’s more hopeless, the reporter who misidentifies Will.i.am as Wyclef Jean (and even when corrected, still can’t get the name right), or the anchor who completely forgets his co-worker’s name. Mike? Blake? Whichever.
Eventually the clueless correspondent did identify the Black Eyed Peas bandmember, saying, “Either way, you kind of get the idea.” We don’t really know what that means, but all seemed fine because he was met with praise by his anchors, who claimed his reporting was “stellar work,” even “A+ gold.” Great job, whatever your name is! Fortunately Will.i.am seems oblivious to the encounter.
