There’s a time and place to bring up your sex toy-related conspiracy theories, but that time is not when you’re in the middle of presenting a live TV news broadcast.

This newscaster clearly thinks he’s exposing the dark truth behind Amazon‘s success, explaining that dildo sales are the real reason why Amazon is beating Walmart in terms of market value. In reality, he’s creating an unintentional IRL sitcom moment by rambling about sex toys on live TV.

His co-host’s long-suffering reaction is what really cements the hilarity of this clip. Watch her expression get more and more rigid as he just… won’t… stop… talking.
