Chicago reporter gets even on video bombers

WGN-TV reporter Pat Tomasulo was apparently sick and tired of people waving and making funny faces behind him while he was trying to tape standups — so he decided to get even.

For what was billed as a “special two part edition” of the station’s “Pat Down” segment, Tomasulo pretended to be reporting live from a Chicago auto show and, when he caught someone bombing his “live shot,” he pulled them over and proceeded to ask embarrassing questions about rashes, erectile dysfunction medication and leather competitions.

Oh, and he also pretended to call the cops on one group of passerby.
