“The Internet Has Been Won!” TV Reporter Goes Viral After Skateboarding Through Silky Smooth Live Report

“The Internet Has Been Won!” TV Reporter Goes Viral After Skateboarding Through Silky Smooth Live Report

An American TV reporter has gone viral after not just reporting the story, he became the story.

Detroit TV station WDIV-Local 4 sent reporter Victor Williams to cover a newly opened skate park in the area that was offering free lessons to beginners.

Rather than your usual dull straight-to-camera, Williams did his report – in suit and tie, no less – while traversing the newly laid course aboard a loaned skateboard.

Williams, who has been skateboarding since the age of eight, said he had to show the kids how it’s done.

“In all seriousness – as a child, I would have killed for a new park and mentors in the skateboarding community,” wrote Williams on Twitter. “Glad to see it’s happening in Detroit.”

WDIV anchors Karen Drew and Jason Colthorp back in the studio were suitably impressed with the reporter’s smooth moves, too.

“Victor, you are so cool. He’s so cool!” said Drew. “Look at him go! Wow. So impressed.”

“That’s live, folks!” said Colthorp. “Really good stuff, Victor.”

Social media users were also suitably impressed with the reporter’s moves. Check out some of the reactions below:
