I’m pretty sure this is how this goes down.

Is this awkward silence guy from YouTube? I can’t get excited for E3 unless they have some guys from YouTube doing the awkward silence!

Yeah that guy really choked, huh. He needed a proper script. You could tell the pressure of him blowing his one shot at widespread recognition was making it harder for him to not blow his one shot at widespread recognition. Like, you could observe it while it was happening, see his mind race. Fascinating, really. Poor guy.

Anyone has a link to this happening? I think I missed it…

I have to kind of feel for the guy after that. For someone who is used to going off script to be in a formal “scripted” scenario, it’s kinda sucky to begin with, but then to have the script change on him at least twice, plus one time when the prompter was all wrong… but noone ever blames the producers, it’s always the guy who froze.

After watching your link, to me it seems less a reporter fail, and more an broadcaster fail. I see this thing on newscasts sometimes, and they forget to alert the reporter, a technical hickup occurs, or there is a time delay in the transmission. A great example is tge last clip in the video.

That said, I like this comic. 😛

Tim there’s something seriously wonky going on with this new website, I shouldn’t have to delete my cache every day to make the buttons not do crazy things. Love your comic and all that.

I use firefox, current version. When I hit the back button it goes to the previous comic, but then hitting either the forward or back buttons just refresh the page, essentially. I stay on the previous days comic. It’s not that big a deal to refresh my cache to get it to work but it’s odd.

Actually it might just be that I’m very slightly missing the back/forward button, and for some reason clicking outside your comic page refreshes the page. Is that opening the comments maybe? I dunno.

Just to add to this, what I’m finding is that when I got the page and click back, a “#” is added to the end of the url for some reason, which does not allow me to move forward or backward. When I delete that, it resumes normal functions.

I’m kinda hoping Tim understands that this isn’t the presenter’s fault, and it’s more the broadcast team.

I mean, hell, on https://youtu.be/KXLNsQA9HT8?t=3m40s you can see the guy JUST getting his cue that he’s live. They switched to the camera too soon.

Then again, I really wish they’d stop bringing Youtubers to this. It’s a bit too “Hey kids! We’re hip and trendy! Look at all these Youtubers presenting our conference that you may or may not heard of!” for my taste.
