Flight 214 pilots’ names: viral video

KTVU Pilots NamesA video from TV station KTVU in the San Francisco bay area has gone viral, following a news broadcast which declared the names of the pilots involved in the crash of Flight 214 as:

– Sum Ting Wong
– Wi Tu Lo
– Ho Lee Fuk
– Bang Ding Ow

The brilliant part of the video is that not only did the on-air staff read the names in an entirely serious fashion, the station displayed the names on screen for numerous seconds.

Whereas I normally say that “you can’t write material like this” — apparently you can.

That is why God created editors.  Or in this case: not so much.


Now that I am at home, I can post the full video below:
