Video: Aussie news reporter gets pranked ‘Ron Burgundy’ style

AN Australian news reporter fell victim to a TV presenter’s Anchorman style prank, when he hijacked the autocue as she was giving her news update.

As reporter Roz Kelly was delivering her report on last night’s UEFA Europa League Final between Chelsea and Benfica, her colleague Karl Stefanovic unleased the prank.

Commenting that the final was being held in Amsterdam, Roz followed up with: “How good are the cookies there?”

Stefanovic could not hold in his laugher and rolled around in hysterics.

“See, I read everything on the autocue, it's like Anchorman,” Roz admitted. “You may have won the battle, but I will win the war.”
