Some news reporters handle these drunks better than others. One news crew on this list brings it upon themselves, when the only interview subject they can find is a very drunk dude. And sometimes, it's the reporters themselves who are the drunks, interrupting their own newscast.
What are the craziest cases of drunk people interrupting the news? This list has videos and news clips from the most unfortunate, but always hilarious, instances of drunks interrupting a news broadcast.
Vote up the funniest drunk people interrupting the news below and enjoy watching these news professionals try to deal with all these drunks.
Guy Tries to Stuff Dollar Down Reporter's Shirt
In what is probably one of the greatest moments in drunken news report history, "Lisa" is either recognized from her pre-reporting job or is simply being thanked by one of the locals for her hard work as a news correspondent... with some cold hard cash.
This video is short and sweet, but the part that really makes you admire this news reporter, is that she actually THANKS the guy for the money before she gives it back without skipping a beat of her report.Now THAT'S professionalism.
News Reporter Slaps a Drunk Guy
Everyone remembers where they were when they found out Michael Jackson died. So in a news report about Michael Jackson's death, an overzealous (and overdrinking) fan decides to weigh in on the tragedy by slurring the words "Michael Jackson" while playing ring-around-the-camera-man with the news reporter.Watch the news reporter at 00:26, though, for his hand hitting the drunk guy's face right before they cut back to the news desk.
If You Can't Beat 'Em, Just Let Them Do the News
This is awesome, and one of the many reasons Fox News isn't exactly news as much as it is just "entertainment."
After what is probably thousands of interruptions by drunk people at St. Patty's Day parades, this local news station just gave up and let the drunkest, but most coherent guy they could possibly find do the news.
He may not be professional, but his random yelling and observations make a more amusing report than any actual reporter has ever turned in. It's also a more authentic St. Patrick's Day experience this way, which really makes this news report a "win."
Drunk Guy Makes Faces, Uses Family Guy Rule of Repetition = Funny
If there's anything "Family Guy" has taught us, it's that if you repeat something enough times, even if it sucks, it's eventually becomes at least kind of funny.
In this video, this guy milks that concept dry.
Doing what any of us would do behind a news reporter who we think can't see us, the guy made the same stupid face about seven times behind the reporter. Ostensibly his friends were watching the newscast somewhere on one of the TVs in the bar and kept telling him it was funny.
The great part is that after about four times, this drunk guy's friend actually tries to help him save a little face by pulling him out, but not wanting to humiliate him gets to that point we all get to eventually when it comes to drunk friends of ours being jackasses: "Eeeh, I tried. Let him make an ass of himself, he won't remember it anyway."(Un)Fortunately for this guy, he will live in internet infamy forever.
