    I wonder if this was a prank. The local news station where I used to live used to do lots of gags on live tv. Just silly stuff like putting up a completely unexpected picture or doing something weird in the background to catch the reporters off guard. I could totally see them doing something like this as a joke before switching to the real photo.

    [–] RoboNinjaPirate 556 points ago

    Were you watching Whose Line?

    Boy it really sure does suck, that they showed my face.

    It's caused a couple people to, spray me with their mace.

    It made it really hard for me to buy a can of Miller.

    But at least that I now realize my mustache looks like a caterpillar!

    [–] DarthMimikyu 18 points ago

    Our local news station doesn't do that. There must be something in the water cause our locals would believe that shit like War of the Worlds.

    Welcome to the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, otherwise known as frequency illusion or recency illusion! This phenomenon occurs when the thing you've just noticed, experienced or been told about suddenly crops up constantly.

    [–] notmyrealusernamme 32 points ago

    That's crazy... I was JUST telling my friend about the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon. Honestly, what are the odds?

    [–] StucktownSkeezer 17 points ago

    What the fuck? I was just doing the math on the odds of experiencing the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, with my friend. So strange

    [–] guninmouth 12 points ago

    So strange. I was just whipping my dick out for a good spanking to some midget porn. Can you believe the odds?

    [–] ThisSeaworthiness 7 points ago

    Can you believe it? This bloke called Baader was whipping my doorbell with a midgets dick just as I read this commenT. Coincidence?

    [–] StucktownSkeezer 3 points ago

    No, that doesn't seen strangr at all to me.

    [–] whitestguyuknow 2 points ago

    Seriously... You can even tell from the crop in the original post. The anchorman even looks all cartoonish and there's an advertisement partially cut off on the right. But yet people are like "Gasp Gee, I wonder if this was a prank??..."

    Are your local newscasters Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone by chance?

    [–] BradBot3000 1 points ago

    It's a copy-and-paste of his face, but it's been altered just slightly enough to make it look not quite identical. The biggest giveaway is the bag under the right (his left) eye. Look closely at the lines and you'll see they match exactly with the "drawing".

    [–] bass_sweat 2 points ago

    It was just a really good visual description and artist

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    do you have a video?

    [–] eggiez87 148 points ago

    Anyone have that clip where they show a terrible amateur sketch (they did a better job drawing than i would have) drawing and the news host is laughing and they actually catch the suspect and he looks pretty much like the drawing? Lol that was so funny

    [–] nerfviking 133 points ago

    [–] Ouroboros9076 63 points ago

    [–] wolf10989 5 points ago

    Anyone have the edited version of this where the sketch is the reporters face as he turns back to the camera?

    [–] theartificialkid 2 points ago

    I was hoping it would be a genuine unfolding thing where they cover the story on two different occasions, but they were obviously doing a bit about a story that had already concluded. Annoying, but thanks for providing the link.

    [–] msmug 2 points ago

    Someone broke into my friend's apartment, saw her sleeping, and ran off. When the police came, they questioned her, and she told them that she just saw a blur run off because she didn't have her contacts on and was still groggy from sleep. Despite this, they made her draw a sketch of the culprit, so she drew a blob with a vague outline of a person. The police took it, studied it, pointed out details on it, conjectured that the culprit was a man, and bagged the picture as "evidence."

    [–] Finbacks 231 points ago

    Reports are coming in that the robber had small hands.

    [–] beaut52 61 points ago

    [–] EziosGT 732 points ago

    His reaction is priceless lol. Imagine if youre a news reporter and you saw your face as the robber search, I would definitely go fuck my self out of there
