BBC news reporter Simon Mccoy was not having it last night. With exasperated breaths and sarcastic sighs, Mccoy described the 2nd annual World Dog Surfing Championships held in Pacifica with what was probably the least enthused monotonous voice anyone has heard. Without even trying to hide the fact that he was reading off the prompter, he began with a precursor to the rest of this amazing story:
Just bear in mind, it is August… This does not look like a walk in the park. Dog owners and their pets have hit the waves at the 2nd annual World Dog Surfing Championships (audible sigh)
As the package of the surfing dogs rolled, Mccoy let out the most disappointed sigh he could muster, clearly letting us all know that he really didn’t want to do this. He gladly ended the segment with a toss to his weatherman: “the weather, let’s get the latest. On the other side of the newsroom, Ben Rich… can get us out of this one,” to which he replied, “that’s the best thing I’ve ever seen, Simon. They give you all the biggest stories, don’t they?”
Clearly, this news reporter LOVES surfing dogs. Here are some hilarious Twitter reactions:
I don't know why Simon McCoy thinks a story about surfing dogs is beneath him, he spent 5 years as a royal correspondent.

I enjoy both surfing dogs and watching a man’s spirit being brutally crushed before your eyes so this is great content https://t.co/2iC6MeKaWn

Personally if I was a newscaster & I was told to do a segment about surfing dogs I'd be overjoyed. I'd think of puns & everything.

Not only am I American, I live in California, and you gave me a wonderful laugh. I wish our newsreaders were so honest about crap stories!

A hero Simon, a hero. Next thing you know, there'll be a film on you. AnchorMan 3: The Legend of Simon McCoy?
