Reporter Playing Pokemon Go Walks In Front Of Meteorologist Giving Weather Report

July 15, 2016


This is a video of Tampa, Florida based WPLG News 10 anchor Allison Kropff distracted while playing Pokemon Go and walking in front of meteorologist Bobby Deskins while he's giving a live weather report. So, it's come to this. We've got idiots trying to cross highways on foot and getting hit by cars trying to catch Pokemon and people falling off f***ing cliffs playing the game. Now I'm not saying Pokemon Go was clearly invented by Darwin himself, but you can't tell me it's just coincidence that the letters in 'Pokemon Go' can be rearranged to spell 'Galapagos,' where Darwin did so much of his research. "You're an idiot." Yeah well at least I'm not playing in traffic trying to catch pocket monsters.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Tony, who missed his wedding and the birth of his first child playing Pokemon Go.

    fake... you dont have to be close to a pokemon to get it. I just caught a pokemon 4 house down the street on my bed

    What was the pokemon doing on your bed?

    I'm betting it was staged for ratings... If we don't hear this person was fired then I was right...

    I still don't understand why so many people think they have to look at their screen the whole time playing this game or keep on walking toward the Pokemon after they show up on the map... those are the two main reasons people are getting hurt and doing the most stupid Pokemon Go-related crap and they're *so* easily avoidable.

    Derpys gon' derp.

    exactly... earbuds and the audio turned up a bit is enough to alert anyone of either a stop or pokemon.

    I'll just hold my phone at my side (or in my pocket) and walk like a "normal" person, wait until my phone vibrates, and then I'll find a safe place to stand still for a minute. There are perfectly acceptable options for those who want to play the game and don't want to be more likely to get mugged (some may say wearing ear buds or headphones could lower one's awareness of one's surroundings) or get hit by a car.

    I agree... I wear my earbuds the same way when I'm riding or running, traffic-side ear is always unobstructed.
