Morning Show fiasco: the untold story

Lights, camera, action. The bright lights blinded us from truly seeing how the audience viewed us.

It was one of the worst things to happen to the SAS morning show. Sanya Seth and I had slaved away the night before, writing the perfect script for our Morning Show debut. We were giddy yet nervous as we waltzed into the studio. Seth described the infamous broadcast as the most traumatic four minutes of her life. “I view life differently now because of that. I feel so misunderstood because no one knows what really happened.” Tiffany Yu, senior, called it the “worst morning show ever.” But there are two sides to every story, and this is ours.

The day started off as any regular morning does with the Morning Show crew. Everyone was in position, ready for the debut of comedians Sanz and Jamz.I was nervously shaking my leg, while Sanya stared at her senior-spirited mug, holding only ice for the final stint to be performed at the end. Everything was the way it was supposed to be until… the chair farted. Laughter spilled into the air for those who could hear the proot.My face went blank while the the other people in the room were silently laughing into the quiet air, and for the audience watching these two beauties in their classrooms, they had no clue. Quickly, I tried to recover, but I failed. Due to the fact that no one else heard the chair fart, they will never know why I broke down into hysterical laughter.

Don’t jump to conclusions, sometimes it really is the chair.
