WATCH: Two Crazy Fake L.A. Dudes Crash Live Local News Shot (UPDATED)

What possesses a person to crash a local news live shot? Well, apart from a number of intoxicating agents, there’s a weird thrill in getting your five seconds (15 minutes is way too long these days) of fame, and two really energetic L.A. men hijacked a live shot and one of them managed to drop a word one doesn’t normally hear on the local news in… well, non-feline contexts.

One of them ran right up to the camera and started shouting intelligibly (except for the one word) and as the local news reporter pushed him off-camera, another photobomber popped up in the background.

Normally it’s just one photobomber at a time, now it’s too. What next? A spontaneous local news flash mob interruption?

UPDATE: Oops… Looks like this was a hoax. A very entertaining one.
