Los Angeles experienced a 4.4-magnitude earthquake today. KTLA news anchor Chris Schauble was not into it.

Schauble’s expressive reaction to the quake gained attention on the Internet. It’s already getting turned into GIFs and mocked/celebrated on social media.


This morning’s event was L.A.’s largest quake since 2008, but so far, there have been no reports of injuries or damage.

And Shauble’s ego certainly isn’t damaged. The anchor is taking his newfound viral celebrity in stride:

LOL! Best… Face… Ever! #Earthquake! “@BaileyLAKings: @ChrisKTLA #earthquakeface
