Local news’s Talk Like a Pirate Day segment bombs due to teleprompter fail

Chris Spags Founder and Editor

WGN tried to do a cute little segment for Talk Like a Pirate Day despite it being the dumbest day ever. And the segment completely hit the skids when the teleprompter stopped working entirely.

This bit was bad, don’t get me wrong, but I have to admire how the dude stayed in character the whole time. You’re playing the part of a pirate so don’t break character. I respect that. Now go get plastered on some rum and make with the pillaging.

What'd you think of this?
