Anderson Cooper Dissolves Into Giggles While Discussing Dyngus Day
Hey, it happens. But why does it always happen to Anderson Cooper?
The host of CNN's Anderson Cooper 360° lost his composure Tuesday while covering a story about Dyngus Day, a Polish-American celebration of the end of Lent.
"You could have gotten your Dyngus on in Indiana or Ohio, but if you really want the most bang for your Dyngus buck, you gotta shuffle off to Buffalo [N.Y.]," Anderson said before the report cut to some footage from Buffalo's Dyngus celebrations.
Anderson cracked up at this line from the narrator's script: "The quirkly little ritual includes boys sprinkling girls they fancy with water, and the girls striking back with a tap from a pussy willow branch."
After trying to walk off the set, Anderson said, "It's really so stupid," and continued to giggle in full view of the camera lens. "Just gotta let it out," he said.
Anderson also lost it last August, when he reported on French actor Gerard Depardieu urinating in the cabin of a plane.
