Dune And Busted

A red-faced TV reporter who thought he was onto a shore thing as he faked a sand storm when he missed the real thing has become a laughing stock in Romania after his cameraman let viewers in on the stunt.

The reporter - from the Realitatea TV news channel - shows the reporter apparently struggling to keep on his feet as clouds of sand hit him while he says: "The wind blows with incredible power, there are moments when it is impossible to stand up here. The wind blows the sand at over 60 km per hour."

"The wind blew away the beach umbrellas and the tourists had to leave in a hurry," he added in the breathless live report from the country's Black Sea coast.

But as he continued the report - now an internet sensation - his cameraman pans right, where members of the production crew can be seen kicking clouds of dusts into the air towards the reporter.

Yesterday the channel insisted the report was genuine.

The reporter claimed: "The report was not doctored in any way. It was a bad joke made by the cameraman."

    You should have double checked the translation before writing the story. The bad joke was made by a cameraman named Marius Pantu and he's working for another TV Station (Digi 24). He's the one who kicked the sand with his feet while the above news report was broadcasted live. He thought this was a good prank. It wasn't. Here are some extra videos shot in the same day and same place. http://www.boio.ro/povestea-nisipului-spulberat-de-vant-de-la-mamaia/
