Brian "Boom Goes The Dynamite" Collins Is Back And Better Than Ever

Friday, August 22, 2008


Everyone remembers Brian Collins right? He who provided the world with perhaps the biggest on-air trainwreck in the history of televised news? "Boom Goes The Dynamite"? Okay good. Well Collins has actually recovered from his on-air breakdown and found employment in Waco, Texas. He is working at local station KXXV as a reporter and it seems like he's doing well with his life.

Now I know what you're saying. Why didn't AA report on this yesterday when everyone else had it? Well folks, that's because I wanted KXXV to post some video of Brian's work at the station. Here's his report on teachers carrying handguns in schools!



I missed you greatly Brian. It's good to see that you've worked on your recoveries, but still have that stammering flow that endeared you to millions across the country. It's good to have you back and we'll be watching!

My god... he's still utterly awful. Stammering, poor cadence... jesus, dude, and that was clearly from a prepared script. Maybe you're just not dynamite at this, Brian.

That was hilarious. Honestly, it was sounding eerily Boom Goes The Dynamite-esque for a while there, at least he's figured out how to avoid completely falling apart.

I really feel bad for this guy. Probably shouldn't though...he opens himself up to this. Who the hell is the news director KXXV?

I don't think Les Miles is going to be recruiting him to Sportscenter any time soon.

Geeze. If this guy can get a job as a reporter, I shouldn't be wallowing in unemployment for the eighth straight month here.

Maybe I ought to head me down to Waco-ways.

Who can't see him turning around and yelling "Can't somebody answer that f'ing phone!" after he threw it back

Everybody is having their laughs, but this guy does have a huge pair of brass ones for even attempting this career. The dude wants it bad. Many TV/Radio/Film students start off wanting to be reporters, but one "boom goes the dynamite" take and it's off to the school newspaper.

I admire his deciation and willingness to continue with his career.

Holy shit, it's true!

Les Nessman actually had sex!

Hell, Les even fathered a child!

And I thought Dr. Johnny Fever and Venus Fly Trap had been lying - or on some real good weed - all those years during my time at WOIC in the Bahamas.

I had no idea.

Boy, the Doctor and Venus sure had it right. Les's kid is a chip off the old rock (sic).
