Local ABC reporter, unable to find people to talk about water rate hike, interviews cat (video)

A local ABC reporter in Springfield, Illinois, Garrett Brnger (yes, he’s missing a vowel), was trying to find people to interview about a recent water rate hike, and failed.

So he interviewed a cat.

Here’s a great lunchtime break, and this was just posted yesterday, so you’re some of the first to see it.


ABC REPORTER GARRETT BRNGER: You’d probably be paying, along with your kittens, about 15 extra dollars. How do you feel about that?

CAT: (Nuzzles microphone.)

REPORTER: No kidding?

CAT: (Rubs microphone with head.)

REPORTER: Oh, you don’t use any water – you don’t like baths, huh?

CAT: (Head butts mic.)

REPORTER: Sir, I’m going to have to ask you to stop attacking my mic.

CAT: (Backs away.)

REPORTER: Now that’s just uncalled for.

CAT: (Nuzzles up against reporter’s thigh.)

REPORTER: Well this is inappropriate.

    The video is gone. I have checked many sites that carried this same story, and the video is gone from all of them. Very disappointing.

    Red cats rock!

  • Delightful!!!

  • cole3244

    he does have journalistic integrity so leave the rock to faux news that’s their level anyway.

  • XKCD

    Next time, he could interview an actual rock.

  • cole3244

    that’s the most intelligent interview he will do today and will make humans less desirable to interview in the future as their answers are no more cogent.

    animals & cats especially rock.

    That was at least as informative as the average man-on-the-street interview in this neck of the swamp.

  • maria

    At least he was honest and went to a real cat. Normally we have to settle for catty remarks by watching those Real Housewives programs or the mothers of kid dancers on those many shows headed by Abby Lee.

    Me, too!

    Thanks, I needed that laugh.
