News Anchors Totally Lose It When Meteorologist Prances Onto Set Dressed As A Unicorn

We all know that one person at work who is a real prankster.

At Canada's Global News Calgary, Jordan Witzel does not disappoint.

On Halloween, the news anchors got quite a shock when their meteorologist Witzel came out to share the weather report as "Ferdinand" the Mystical Meteorologist.

His costume was complete with wings and a horn, white bodysuit, tights and booty shorts, as well as a hot-pink wig and matching legwarmers and tail. But the feature he kept stressing was his shiny silver hooves.

Clearly, his hooves weren't what his fellow news anchors were looking at, as they kept giggling and stressing how tight his clothes were.

Viewers on Twitter have been enjoying Global News' antics, and Witzel's costume choice.

Most find the costume hilarious, especially for a news network. Some have even commented on how cold he must have been in the costume, since most snow-bearing regions experienced the joy of snow on Halloween.

This is pretty normal behavior, as the anchors and fellow staff at Global News Calgary are no strangers to antics and general goofiness.

Back in April for April Fool's Day 2019, the team rallied a video of pranks. Over the years, the team has gotten so invested in pranking each other that other Calgary city officials and the police department have gotten involved in the antics.

Not to mention, for Father's Day 2017, the team invited the local community to share their worst, most cringe-worthy Dad Jokes. Anchorman Scott Fee was so appalled by the jokes that he started making faces in front of the camera, which future Mystical Meteorologist Jordan Witzel took full advantage of, taking a screenshot of Fee's expression and teasing him during his weather broadcast.

Honestly, the team seems to be on to something.

Sometimes life just doesn't have our best interests at heart.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
