Watch A Brown Student Troll A Hurricane Sandy Broadcast

Amid the chaos yesterday of Hurricane Sandy, one Brown student apparently thought it would be funny to score an live, on-air interview and then question the legitimacy of the storm (props to Daily Intel’s Kevin Roose, Brown Class of 2009, for finding the clip). When NBC reporter Alison Bologna asks Brown junior Daniel Moraff why he would brave the weather in Providence, he responds:

“I’m still pretty skeptical. I don’t really believe that there’s a hurricane. I know the government wants us to think that, but think about it — the earth rotates very quickly.”

How droll, Daniel. You must write for a Brown University humor publication of some sort.

Although confused, Ms. Bologna moves forward with the interview, probably thinking, “well, that sounds like something they teach at Brown.” However, when she gets to her next question — school cancellations — Daniel’s attempt at a joke becomes clear:

“Well, you know, the government definitely wants you to think classes have been cancelled. I’m not so sure.”

Brilliant trolling Daniel! Fantastic performance!

To her credit, Ms. Bologna clearly realizes at this point she’s being messed with, and does her best to expertly distance herself from Daniel by looking directly at the camera. Watch it for yourself below:

    ….I can’t tell if you are answering his satire with satire or if you are actually the dumbest person ever. He is giving a comedic, satirical take on climate change….if you were also being satirical I apologize. If you were serious….I hope you are below average for American intelligence.

    Kids who attend Brown are retards. Heck I’d rather attend a non-ivy like Northwestern, Duke or Chicago than go to Brown, Dartmouth or Cornell. These schools are the dregs of the league.

    Haha, we can be sure he’s not from Chicago because he didn’t bring up the number of Nobel prizes won by its faculty.

    Your school doesn’t make a difference, what you do there matters the most. I don’t care whether you went to an ivy or a non ivy as long as you have a good work ethic.
