Reporter Has No Idea He Is Interviewing Bob Odenkirk

A reporter in Calgary was sent out to do man in the street interviews about Fargo being filmed in Calgary. He stops a man and asks him questions about the show and never realizes that Bob Odenkirk, the man he is interviewing actually stars on the show.

well I don't know who that is and the guy is wearing shades and a well whatever the hell that is on his head so whats the story here?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I have no clue what the description is about.

TalksTooMuch said...

Oooh, this is like the Kevin McHale interview with a basketball fan while on the Dream Team.

Plus, that's Calgary for ya

also: not it, but tell me if it's good! I'm so bossy

sandybrook said...

Tl:dw sounds like another proud moment in Canadian history though.

TalksTooMuch said...

Um, sandy, I don't think you want to get into a battle as to whose location is considered an embarrassment. ..considering your state has become a verb

TalksTooMuch said...

Wigs, I'm guessing the reporter is interviewing someone he thinks is a random dude off the street, but is actually the star of the show he is asking about

jack ducky said...

I wouldn't know who that was either and I've seen a few episodes of that show.

derek harvey said...

@TTM---please tell me those winter bonnets are not a thing out west?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I think a Canadian needs to take this on and translate for the rest of us. I only speak American.

NJ FireFighter said...

tl:dw (the clip or the show)

Violet said...

Well he's pretty dull. And all i got from that really is that it looks the f**k cold so I won't be moving to Calgary any time soon.

Riven said...

I love the news!fail with best the Vancouver reporter who interviewed Kevin Bieksa thinking he was Ryan Kesler - both are players on the Canucks.

(See: Kes is American but Bieks is Canadian. Bieks spent the interview trolling America and the reporter never caught on).

Hammer_Girl said...

I didn't watch it but how can anyone not know Saul Goodman?!

Sugar said...

My speakers shut down almost every time I try to watch an entyvid. Must be my speakers trying to look out for my best interest. Thanks speakers!

I love Bob Odenkirk though. Any Mr. Show lovers out in the audience today?

TalksTooMuch said...

I would like to tell you that, Derek, but I'd be lying. Alllll my boys wear them. Wait! I have a really cute picture, I will change my avi for a minute. Check it oot!

TalksTooMuch said...

Tell me that's not adorable, Derek!?

derek harvey said...

@TTM--it is TOTALLY FINE for a child FTR lol---it makes the guy LOOK like a child

Jerry Seinfeld said...

I'm with you, @Hammer_Girl!
Who doesn't know Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad???
And 'Better Call Saul' starting in November?

derek harvey said...

@TTM yes very cute!

Sugar said...

ADORABLE ALERT!!!!!!!!! Such a cutie you got there, TTM!

plokzy said...

Mr show!! Tim and Eric!! Tom goes to the mayor!! I'd shower tge guy with praise if I ever met him

TalksTooMuch said...

But I like all my boys to look the same! Even my great big one!

Jerry Seinfeld said...

Fargo is a great TV show.
Bob Odenkirk is way underused.

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks Sugar!

Kat has left the building said...

Okok ill do it...

Better Call Saul!

This interview was adorable!

Runswithscissors said...

@hammer. Exactly! Right? If you watched and claim to be a Breaking Bad fan, you should recognize his jaw and voice as Saul.

Kat has left the building said...

And Larry Sanders!

Kat has left the building said...

@Seinfeld I don't think he's underused, I'm pretty sure he's more of a writer than an actor

FlirtyChick74 said...

People wear them here all the time in Minnesota.

Hammer_Girl said...

Counting down the days! I was stoked when they announced Mike would be a regular.

Hammer_Girl said...

Awwww, he is cheek pinching cute!!

As for the hat, I've bought one like that for my rent a kid, and I'm in FL. His mom was soooo happy.

sandybrook said...

Dont make me go Florida on your ass TTM :)))

Candyland said...

Fargo finale tomorrow! Can't wait. It is funny that the reporter had no idea he was talking to a main character in the show!

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks, Hammer! Right, Flirty? I like them because it covers their ears and head all in one shot, with much less whining

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks, Derek!

__-__=__ said...

Thank you Jerry. This site jumped the shark many, many months ago.

TalksTooMuch said...

I wouldn't threaten, sandy, I've only got 6 months! No reasonable offer will be refused!!

I'm just gonna be over here Rob Fording

__-__=__ said...

Hammer - Exactly!

Hammer_Girl said...

I haven't watched Fargo, the movie or show. Now that I know Bob O. is on it I guess I know how I'll be filling my nights now. Do I have to watch the movie first?

TalksTooMuch said...

The movie is AMAZING, Hammer! Go Bears

sandybrook said...

Fargo the movie was great Hammer watch it you'll enjoy

Jason Blue Eyes said...

It would have been awesome if Bob told that reporter to shut his stinking trap.

Smasherstein said...

I would definitely suggest watching the movie before the show as there are quite a few references. Also the movie is genius, so it needs to be watched regardless.

LOVE Mr. Show, I am obsessed. Had a huge crush on Bob Odenkirk (eh let's be honest, I still do).

surfer said...

Derek and TTM - you are cracking me up!

Derek - winter bonnets? hahaha - that was funny (and let's face it, we are total fashion whores here in Toronto).

TTM - omg - he is so cute! I guess it was inevitable that Robert Ford would become a verb as well.

Freya said...

Glad he didn't go all "Don't you know who I am?" on the reporter.

Sophie Helene said...

Does it sound staged to someone else than me? Former adopted CAlgarian here. It took me a while to recognize Inglewood.

CarrieL84 said...

I'm a Calgarian! Trust me... it's hard to recognize people when all dressed out in touques, winter gear etc.
Sophie - Inglewood has gone through a big revitalization the past few years. It got hit really hard by the flood last year. Hard to believe that was a year ago on Friday.

Wendy Rene said...

November cannot get here soon enough for me. Bob Odenkirk is genius as Saul.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Better Call Saul, yo
Saulgood, man!

Lady Heisenberg said...

The reporter should be grateful we didn't ship his ass off to Belize!!!

amanda_jf said...

Movie and show are different, when the Coens said it was a true story, they were joking. So watch in any order you please, the show is much darker though.

Erik said...

I can't wait for Better Call Saul (but I hope it's better than some of AMC's recent offerings, like Low Winter Sun, Turn, and Halt and Catch Fire).

LogDog said...

He should know better... The first question is always "Give me your name and spell it please."

MOS can be tough. If you need three sots, ask 20 people. I try to get at least five or six if I'm using MOS in a pack, and it can take an hour or two finding people willing to talk on camera.

iknowpeople said...

Have known Bob since before he hit it big. A great guy and like most comedians, very shy.

baumyak said...

little known fact...not many Canadians say aboot. Only met people from Ottawa and Newfoundland that say it that way.

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks, surfer!

TalksTooMuch said...

No doot aboot it, baumyak!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Heisenberg so jelly

Angela said...

Huge Mr. Show (and Ben Stiller Show) fan here. Odenkirk was a hugely talented writer/comedian who switched to character actor at the right time. I don't think much of his latest comedy efforts (the films he directed or his work with The Birthday Boys), but the the guy was in Titannica, Three Times One Minus One, Wycked Scepter, Indomitable Spirit, and his shoe hurts.

Alita said...

The movie is covered in awesome sauce! Favorite parts include "he's kinda funny lookin'"
