Filing a report from the street without the interference of bystanders is hard enough. But when you’re an attractive female in a dress trying to film a segment in front of thousands of beer-swilling fans — all of whom are energized by the anticipation of their national team’s upcoming game — it’s nearly impossible.
One Russian reporter found this out the hard way as she tried — and tried, and tried and tried — to film a segment in front of a horde of Dutch fans prior to a Euro 2012 game.
Though the reporter handled the myriad interruptions admirably, never losing her cool and keeping a smile on her face, it was clear that she grew frustrated as the number of takes continued to grow. It will be interesting to see if the Dutch fans bring the same enthusiasm ahead of the Netherlands’ final Group B game against Portugal on Sunday (after dropping their first two games). The Netherlands can still advance to the knockout stage, but they’ll need some help from Germany if they’re going to do so.
Check out the video below to see the reporter’s multiple attempts to record her story.
