Some of the quirks of Pakistani news reporters have been going viral of late and another funny video has now surfaced. A caller informing an anchor he has the same amount of hair as the latter to explain his balding problem has left netizens cracking up. While the Twitterati enjoyed a good laugh over the particular bit, the anchor made a 'thug life' ‘comeback’ by pointing out facts of a research that pointed to more women finding bald men attractive than those who were not.
In the video that was aired, a caller explains about his balding problem, “Now my age is 27, but at the age of 23 itself, I had lost all hair.”
The male anchor had an interesting question to him, “So now how much hair is left on your head?”
The caller was prompt, “My condition is the same as yours” as the female anchors burst out laughing.
The person who edited the video not only added a sound effect on the anchor’s initial question, but also merged the ‘Aisa kya gunah kiya’ (What crime did I commit?) bit from ‘Tadap Tadap Ke’ song from ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and put a ‘wasted’ tag on him.
Watch the video here:
Netizens couldn't control their laughter and replied with comments like 'savage', 'best answer', 'caller rocked, host shocked' and how it made their day. Here's what they wrote:
However, the anchor was not ‘wasted’ as the edited video claimed, and made a comeback by asking the caller to ‘chill’ and not to take tension over his problem. He even cited a 2017 University of Pennsylvania study in which 70 percent from the research found people with the same ‘condition’ as him attractive over those who had hair. The full video added 'thug life', a popular social media aspect, to the anchor.
Even the caller apologised for the same and the anchor took it sportingly.
Previously, the ‘Tauba Tauba’ reporter, one wearing a bulletproof vest on air, one reporting from a flooded river and another on a donkey had all gone viral.
