Grand Rapids weatherman's live rant goes viral
What feels like a never-ending winter even has a weatherman lashing out.
A Grand Rapids meteorologist's on-air rant to his co-anchors about the cold weather this week has gone viral.
Garry Frank, West Michigan meteorologist for Fox 17, was about to give a state overview on Tuesday when his co-workers began complaining about the cold weather.
Frank had enough. He jokingly goes off about his co-worker's whining when he finishes the seven-day forecast and quickly his frustration became viewers' comedic relief.
“Every time! Doesn’t matter what time I come on, 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, and then you expect me to be chipper for five straight hours. It’s miserable,” Frank said. “I want you guys to say ‘wow that’s great news, it’s going to be 60 on Friday’… well, what do you want me to do, lie to you? I’ll put 70 every day next time.”
The Tuesday segment quickly took off, even making it to Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night. On Friday morning, the news team addressed the televised clip, saying "Garry Frank (and our crappy weather) has stolen the show this week."
Make sure to watch all the way to the end.
