Vids 27/08/2018

Republican senator and previous presidential candidate John McCain passed away on Saturday and the giant TV network NBC announced the news by cutting into regular programming with the breaking news - then in a weird twist the coverage switched to fat dudes in dolphin masks making out. 

It turned out to be a rerun of America's Got Talent, featuring comedy duo the Japanese Belly Guys performing their skit Dolphin Love Story.

Bad timing. 

Real bad timing.
