The “mic drop” has just been reinvented.
You have to hand it to FOX 10 Phoenix reporter Cory McCloskey for turning up the excitement for this spot on a Desert Vista High School football game. Seriously, this spot looks like a College GameDay promo with the hype squad and band on the scene. Plus he does an excellent job of showing the school band some love.
Then, the local reporter got a bit too close and cozy to a sousaphone and, well, his microphone became a near-casualty.
I’ve seen a recorder or two get dropped during a post-game scrum. But this is a one-of-a-kind blooper.
Best part: McCloskey on his back trying to resurrect the swallowed mic. Pure local television gold. I want this guy to go national just so this video can reemerge every year or so.
