I would want something behind me.... I'm notorious for leaning back.


merikaninjunwarrior

that dance is outdated


Krin422

I meant in my chair....


Easy_Manufacturer_31

Why are you dancing in a chair?


Krin422

Damnit....


chrisjames12345

he's kinky like that


MettaWorldBeFree

Right? I’d be scared shitless just getting to and from my desk.


MCD10000

Well it would be a death which is remembered, especially if you where live


Krin422

Well thank you for that. About the only thing I'd be remembered for


tschatman

Imagine leaning back and falling down there. 😱


nevermindphillip

I like to think this is one of those wonderful moments when someone has seen another news channel with a city background, and (due to not knowing what a greenscreen is) decided this is how they must have done it, and setting out to do it too.


sabakurou

what if rain during live ?


knivse

That’s what they use the green screen for. For cover.


AlexWheeldon

Love how safe it looks.


matteocrayo

Well this is news to me


gripfly

Maybe they can save money because they don't need to rent a large room

I take it everybody in Korea dies of lung cancer? That smog is horrendous.


DeliriousBlob

That was in Hanoi, Vietnam, where they broadcasted news of the Trump-Kim summit. They has no studio there so they had to improvise.

rentisafuck

Hmm but the smog is bad in Korea too


DeliriousBlob

Sand from the Gobi desert in the spring and autumn contributes more to bad air quality than industrial fumes


rentisafuck

Oh I didn’t know that… I guess you’re from/ have lived in Korea?


DeliriousBlob

Indeed


rentisafuck

Well thanks for the info, I was always told it was smog from Beijing, probably anti China propaganda.. 한국 애서 어디에 살아요??


DeliriousBlob

'Anti-China propaganda' Lol no. Research has shown that 30~40 percent of pollution in Seoul comes directly from China. About 30 percent originates locally, and the rest is sand carried over from the Gobi desert when it starts to defrost in the spring and turns into little airborne particles. I live in Suwon.


rentisafuck

Bit of a difference between sand from a desert and smog from Beijing though isn’t there, or are you being disingenuous on purpose🤨. Suwon, nice, I’ll be there next month :)


DeliriousBlob

Huh? 30~40 percent from China, probably mostly from factories on their eastern coast, I never said anything about Beijing. 30 percent locally, and the rest from the Gobi. I thought I was pretty clear on that


FunVIP123

half smog / half camera quality


DeliriousBlob

This was in Vietnam, not Korea, and yet I've seen this re-posted in various subs about a dozen times now, not even joking.


Nawozane

Why would someone add Korean text to it?


DeliriousBlob

It's a Korean news agency, in Hanoi, Vietnam for the Trump-Kim summit


Nawozane

So the title is not wrong


ericisalargeegg

The post doesn't say it was in Korea.


DeliriousBlob

Everyone assumes it to be in Korea, thus all the comments about smog. Seoul doesn't look like this.


ericisalargeegg

Smog wise Seoul looks similar, if not worse, half the time. But yeah, the buildings look nothing like Seoul.


DeliriousBlob

Half the time is an exaggeration for the most part. In the winter, the Siberian winds constantly pump clean air from up North, and in the summer the Pacific blows air from the South, and so it's usually only really during spring and autumn when the Gobi desert sand and Chinese coastal pollution really starts to show in the sky of Seoul.


ericisalargeegg

> Half the time is an exaggeration for the most part. I lived there for nearly a decade, particularly in 2018 and 2019 is was close to half the year. Tbf, I was around the Wangsimni/Cheonglangni area which, for some reason, always had higher pollution numbers than the rest of the city so that may factor in.


DeliriousBlob

Nice, I'm too lower middle class to be able to live in Seoul, so I haven't been there much. Your experience outweighs my anecdotes probably


Onesharpman

It says "a Korean news program."


Kampela_

It's a Korean news program, currently located in Vietnam


ericisalargeegg

Yes. It doesn't say in Korea. News programs broadcasting on international news and having reports abroad is completely normal.


LakeStLouis

Right. Think of it this way. Take, for example, Olympic coverage. So NBC sets up a studio or two around the Olympics in Tokyo and broadcasts news from there. Does that make them a Tokyo news program or an American one broadcasting from Tokyo?


Onesharpman

Well you don't have to be such a condescending prick over it. It says "a Korean news program," of course people are going to think it's from Korea. They're not going to think, "Hmm, maybe this is a Korean news program broadcasting from Vietnam!"


LakeStLouis

How was I condescending?


Ok_Carrot_5475

Unbelievable 😅 humans never cease to amaze me at how far they will go


imageswhenawake

wild… I wonder if they do the same thing for the weather forecast, like being tethered off the space station, pointing out the swirls upon earths surface


SnooBooks5261

wait what?? You guys using GREEN SCREENS?


DefnitleyNotACatfish

Stream snipers intencifies


samacora

Ironically given how bad Korea's air pollution is looks like they still had a green screen


kekistani_citizen-69

It's Vietnam


rentisafuck

I was thinking it doesn’t look very much like Korea. How do you know it’s Vietnam? 😗


kekistani_citizen-69

Because this was with the trump and Kim meeting in Vietman, they had to do it on the roof because there was no studio


rentisafuck

Ooh I see

They be like I can't convey real news at let's let's flim in a real background


Haribo1985

Smoggy, nice.


rentisafuck

Yeah from my understanding the smog is bad in Seoul around the end of winter, beginning of spring


Novack_and_good

Nothing new here - every stand up done outside on top of hotels etc is done the same way , and you build up a platform to raise the "talent" up higher than the parapet.


spacekeys_xyz

They’re lucky that they’re not in Russia


marsNemophilist

low hanging joke


RustyJuang

Do you want hard nipples during a live broadcast, because that's how you get hard nipples during a live broadcast.

Finished with the news segment, let me just lean back a little bit.
