Evil interviewer

Totally unrelated to theology or biblical studies, but I had to mention this one.

I'm not a great fan of 'webvideos', but this one had me mercilessly sniggering aloud - I suppose because I knew I shouldn't have been laughing ...

The language is Dutch, but that hardly spoils the effect. The interviewer was apparently tickled by the pitch of his guest's voice, and didn't do a very good job hiding the fact! This was made all the funnier given the sensitive subject under discussion. The poor woman, I presume the high-pitch man's wife (who is in tears), apparently woke up from an operation without the use of her legs. That didn't stop our interviewer, however ... The result is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

Enjoy, fellow evil people.

Hate to brake this to you, Chris, but its a fake... They are all actors. (check the comments on the youtube page)

Still funny though, but not as funny as if it had been real.

It is comforting for those of us who default to laughter in awkward situations. Yes, I'm not as bad a Dr. Hibbard, but I do tend to laugh by default. I laugh a lot anyway just cause I love laughter, but nothing is as awkward as being in a very serious situation and having a tickly smile trying to escape your rib cage! Funny, even though this is Dutch I have seen it before? Maybe someone sent me a link??? Sadly I enjoyed it too.

Patrik, there is some debate as to whether this is fake, actually. Cf. here for another opinion. Very good acting if it is fake, but either way, as you say, it is funny whatever.

I've done some research on teh names given by the doubter in the UTube comments, and it looks like it may be fake, it's difficult to say. Not all hope it lost!

Chris,
I haven't laughed so much in months. Very funny.

Wouldn’t you expect members of the audience to be a bit more squeamish if it was not a fake? They are all so straight faced.
