    Watching the news these days just isn’t as fun as this video makes it out to be. Maybe because news people are stuffy, boring and like to scare you into watching. I know, I used to be one. I used to write things designed to scare you so you’d watch more. Things like, “Coming up next, the Oakland Raiders.”

    So, believe me when I tell you, this video is so much more enjoyable than watching the “real” news.
