Ouch! Reporter Tries To Ambush Subject, Walks Into Traffic Light Pole

I’ve never much liked “ambush” interviews. You know the ones. There the clips where a reporter jumps out of the bushes and starts yelling questions at a Congressmen or insurance fraud guy or owner of a restaurant that failed health codes or something while the subject just covers his face and tries to walk away. Sure, they’re visually exciting but you’re rarely gonna get any actually illuminating answers. Which is why this video of a reporter attempting an interview like that walking right into a traffic light pole is so funny.

…also, people walking into stuff is just funny. Always.

The reporter in question is CTV’s Kent Molgat and you’ve really got to give the guy credit, he’s certainly got a good sense of humor about it. He posted it himself on his Facebook page, instructing friends to “have a good laugh. This is me failing to navigate around a perfectly visible post.”

As cool as Molgat’s response is, my favorite is that of his target. If you watch the clip closely, you can see the guy turn around to see if Molgat’s ok instead of taking the chance to make a quick getaway. Hooray for human empathy! I just hope he got a lot of questions shouted at him for his effort.

Watch the clip below:
