CTV Reporter Walks Into A Pole

Once in awhile a YouTube video comes out that needs to introduction, because its all right there in the title of it. Kinda like this one...
But part of my creativity in sharing these YouTube videos every week is to provide you with additional information relating to the story for those who want more...which i will begin doing so...
Kent is a reporter for CTV (in Canada if you couldnt tell by the accents) with over 25 years experience. This was his attempt at an 'ambush interview' of a Lawyer leaving a courtroom that day. 'Ambush Interviews' are usually when a reporter will surprise the subject or continue to follow them in hopes of getting some kind of reaction or soundbyte out of them.
in this particular case for Kent...it backfires on him and soon HE becomes the story...
Word on the street is that this interview was on Live TV meaning it definately aired. The later part of the video (with the different camera angle was obviously added to the video later when whoever it was uploaded it to YouTube.
kent has kept a good sense of humour throughout it all.
I've looked at the video about 50 times, and I still laugh and I don't know why," he said. "Even though it's me, it's funny to look at. Why is it that when people hurt themselves it's funny? I bust a gut looking at it."
Even Tosh.0 shared the video on his show last week as well giving even more widespread attention. When all is said and done, maybe next time Kent will also pay more attention to his surroundings rather than JUST the person he's interviewing
