What's life without cheap thrills, really? And no thrill is cheaper than a reporter struggling to maintain composure live on television as his world crumbles around him.
Despite having taken French from 1994-2000, I have no idea what this man is talking about (the only thing I remember how to say is "pourriez-vous recommander s'il vous plaît un autre hôtel?") though he does say the words for "election" and "nine." So make of it what you will.
The headline has been updated so as to clarify the reporter is Québécois and not French.
