Reporter Turns Ghetto in 3 Seconds is a viral video depicting a former KARK-4 reporter’s colorful reaction to a bug flying directly into his mouth during his on-camera news report.
In 1995, KARK-4 field reporter Isiah Carey covered a story on the death of a high school student in Augusta, Arkansas. During the filming of his on-camera segment, an insect flew into his mouth, instantly causing Isiah to lose his composure and launch into a profane rant about his displeasure with the shoot location. Incidentally, the off-the-script blooper highlights the noticeable difference between his rehearsed reporting voice and his natural manner of speech.
On June 10th, 2008, the video was featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live, bringing exposure of the video to a national audience.
That same day, the video was re-uploaded by YouTuber nuttcrushernigel who has gotten the majority of the views. The original has only 600,000, while the re-upload has accumulated over 7 million.
The video was soon uploaded to sites such as planetvids and other various video sharing web sites.
The video occupies spot #99 on Greg Rutter’s influential list of viral hits, youshouldhaveseenthis.com
