Map. Forecast. David Beckham.

one of these things does not belong

Like many lazy Americans, I decided the easiest way to check what it’s like outside right now would be to head on over to weather.com, rather than, y’know, get up and look out the window. Before I could successfully type “19102” into the search bar, I was stopped by a video of David Beckham, out of favor international soccer superstar, laughing with Al Roker, with the tagline “David Beckham likes to snuggle”. This alone was the weirdest thing I’ve seen on a (supposedly) serious website in literally days, but then Al proceeds to ask David possibly the most inane question I have ever heard ask in an interview, even for Al: “Do you like weather?”

The Weather Channel, a fully-owned subsidiary of NBC: further proof that old media has run out of things to say to the 21st Century.
