Oscar Armstrong : wait what lmao this was actually released by BBC. lol

Pete Gerard : if I wasn't paying attention I'd have thought this was a 'legit' news report

Christian Gruber : Still one of my favorite takedowns of news media pretension.

stephen connell : Better than the actual product its mocking.

Jonathan Weber : Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful videos on youtube

FractalBoy : A non-English speaker would be hard pressed to spot the difference since everything except the actual words is an exact replica of most news stories. Well, until the lightsaber beheading, which may raise some eyebrows.

scapegoat981 : FYI this guy created Black Mirror

darkevilazn : That matrix joke, just killed me. Literally. I became a ghost just to comment on this video.

Jake Tyler : That Regent Street wordplay is the greatest thing I've ever heard

Sae Ho Oh : if you don't concentrate, you mistake it for a real news.

Casey5693 : I need to show this to my professor. He is making us use a similar format for our reporting project due Monday. It is formulaic and makes people more attention deficient than they are now. I don't want to add to the trend. It's madness!

Zach Payne : And i thought this shit was only in America.... Makes me feel a bit better though that europeans have this stupid shit as well

WarpRulez : This is a YouTube comment written as a response to this spoof/deconstruction of news reports. It's supposed to be witty in the hopes of getting lots of thumbs-ups.

Zyro_Gaming : This got shown in my English class about a week ago

Desie Rickman : This... was lovely. Absolutely brilliant. Good show. :)

ECL28E : You forgot to show the pictures of some random kid, preferably their school photo or a family picture, then red-shift it. Then for some inane reason, talk to the kid's mother, even if she just as qualified as that letter-opening guy

Jesse Bochek : The Regent Street line had me dying.

wheelmanstan : Brilliant, but I really want to hear more about that pipe out the window.

EastStandManc : At the time of writing, 67 journalists are clearly butthurt.

BradTheWiz : Teacher actually posted this as a "guide to a news report" without watching it lmaooo

Greg Nixon : Pretty much nailed it!

Janishi Zitexion : I need this for my college presentation

Kokopelli : I could honestly put anything and someone would argue it. The color green.

The Guiido : Posing a question, What are those?
