The Buzz Report
Best of the Buzz 2007Even we hit comedy gold once in a while--sometimes by accident. Celebrate the year gone by with this highlight reel.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the Buzz Report. This week, well, this week? I'm on vacation actually, so we thought we would ease you into the holiday season with a look back at some of the best Buzz moments of the year with an added bonus, the final installment of the Great Intern Beef. Unless you think they were all about congratulating ourselves here at Buzz, next week we'll give you some bloopers, okay, happy now? Enjoy everyone and have a Merry Christmas, if you're into that sort of thing. Transformers is the movie that's sweeping the nation this summer. Gentlemen, start your bandwagon. First stop, laptop maker Haier, which is offering up a Transformer's notebook. Check it out. Oh, I'm sorry, were you waiting for it to do something? Yeah, no, it doesn't transform. It just has a sticker, but hey, at least it's terrifyingly large. The gadget of the week is the HTC Athena, otherwise known as the HTC Advantage X7501. Now, the Athena is like a device, it is not quite a complete computer, but it kinda has this laptop-like design with the QWERTY keyboard right here. It's maybe like a little bit more of a smart phone, although obviously it's very huge. It's kinda like a three-legged dog. >> Hello, it's Brian Cooley, in for Molly Wood who's home debugging the world's first GPS poo-ey diaper locator. I'm Brian Cooley, in for Molly Wood who's home wiping puree diaper cuts spit up off the screen of her iPhone. Hi, I'm Brian Cooley, in for Molly Wood who's still home perfecting the world's first missile interceptor system for spit-up. Hi, it's Brian Cooley, in for Molly Wood who's still home developing that Linux breast pump. Welcome to the Buzz Report. >> Are you kidding me with this? That's your show? A collection of stupid women fulfilling stupid female stereotypes and or fantasies? Would it kill my space to do a show about like guys living together? >> Guys, guys, let's just all relax and light a candle. >> See, now I would watch that. Authorities speculate due to a corresponding run on Cheetos corn dogs and Coca-Cola that the launch of Halo 3 maybe to blame. For more on this story we turn to our senior Halo 3 correspondent Tom Merritt with this special Buzz Report field report. Tom, can you hear me? >> Ah, yes, yes, I can hear you Molly. >> Can you tell us where you are? >> No, well yeah looks like I am in isolation. No, no actually it's in the pit, will he do a pistol too, but it's just not what it used to be. >> Right. You need the gravity camera. ^M00:02:48 [ Music ] ^M00:03:04 >> Surprise! >> Happy birth -- >> No. ^M00:03:11 [ Music ] ^M00:03:15 >> I am going out for lunch. >> Don't forget we have a meeting at 2. >> I'll be back. >> Nein, I'm actually Austrian. Ich bin auf Osterreich. ^M00:03:24 [ Music ] ^M00:03:31 >> Mark, the intern, good or evil. >> Mark first received recognition when he danced his way out to criticism that he was a thieving, microphone-wielding, puppy-kicker. Mark's complicated multi-syllabic promotion was too much responsibility for the young man. Mark started acting out by wearing a turtleneck and regularly beating CNET employees with his malfunctioning Zoom. Then one day, Mark's supervisor had had enough. He secretly recorded a phone conversation with Mark. >> Do you know who I am? I'm Mark the [inaudible] intern. [Inaudible]. I'm better and frankly, more [inaudible] intelligent than you. >> Please hang up and try again. >> The tape's release caused international outrage. Mark apologized. And then began anger management classes. ^M00:04:33 [ Music ] ^M00:04:37 Will Mark's ego take over CNET and then the world? ^M00:04:41 [ Music ]
