Doesn’t Anyone Want A Free Trip To Greece?

I know saying “FAIL” is over, but it’s the only word to describe this video of a local TV station making a 7:21 AM phone call to a sleeping person to “help” her win a trip to Greece. Notice the childlike excitement and wonder of the hosts. That’s called “comic juxtaposition” (and also “TV show contest call FAIL”):

Aww. And look how cold it is! This would have been great even without the live TV f-bomb. Related: does anyone remember the TV show or movie where every time the phone rang, one character answered with the name of a radio station, and it was supposed to show how trashy that character was? It’s famous, I swear, and totally the kind of thing Kenny Powers from Eastbound And Down would do. Anyway, that was awesome.
