Chicago team’s attempt at ‘Today’ inspired promo doesn’t go well
So, WGN-TV tried the same idea on the streets of Chicago — and the results are pretty funny.
The team gets weird looks from Chicagoans passing by and one man even tries to cover the lens on a camera phone when a WGN-TV anchor plops down next to him and tries to snap a selfie with him.
Another woman tries to avoid the crowd of anchors — but is all hugs and smiles when she arrives at the front door of a friend or family member.
Finally, the anchors end up at a local bar, where they seem to gain some acceptance (at last), which leads to the tagline: “Like booze, we’re an acquired taste.”
