This video of a Dutch reporter doing a relaxed lean right off of a dock (and the mayor she's interviewing haplessly trying to pull her out of the water with his fancy mayor-necklace) is a blooper so perfect it has to be fake.

It probably is.

The interviewer, Martje Oesterholt, is a tourism marketing consultant working on promotion for Sail Kampen, the city of Kampen's huge Easter music festival. Sure, she could have slipped into the water—through that conveniently open gate—at the best possible moment in a promotional video, but post-Kimmel cynicism says it's unlikely.

Either way, it's a timeless mayor-meets-girl, girl-falls-in-water, mayor-is-pretty-bad-at-aquatic-rescues story.
