Working from home is difficult, especially
when your job requires you to be on camera.
For proof of this, look no further
than meteorologist Paul Dellegatto.
While he was delivering a live weather
forecast from home on April 16, his dog Brody
decided to join him and ask for some pets.
“The maps aren’t gonna move because he
just whacked the computer with his head,”
an exasperated Dellegatto tells both viewers
and the cameraman filming from outside.
“That wasn’t very smart,” he then says to
Brody, who has no idea what he’s saying.
“Didn’t mean to keep you up,” Dellegatto
jokes when Brody yawns during his forecast.
“Next time, buddy, we’re gonna eat after this".
Just when Dellegatto thinks he’s in the clear,
Brody strolls over to the window and tries to say hi
to the cameraman, Craig, who’s stationed outside.
“He’s jumping up looking for Craig
outside the window,” Dellegatto says
as Brody takes over the screen.
“We don’t need to see that forecast
map. We’ll just look at Brody,” one of
Dellegatto’s coworkers says jokingly.
A clip of this hilarious moment posted to
Twitter by reporter Andrew Feinberg has
already received more than 175,000 likes.
In the comments, people joked that
they have “no choice but to stan”.
“I want to see everyone in their pajamas
with their pets and a glass of wine
telling me how stupid everything is”.
“Things that are awesome about this:
1. He clearly loves Brody even when the dog
is disruptive. 2. Physical distancing with Craig
via the window. 3. Craig knows what content
we want and focuses on the dog”.
Even “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill chimed
in, writing, “One of the only things I like about
the lockdown is being able to see what
everybody’s homes look like. That, & dogs
photobombing the weather report, of course”.
Many eagle-eyed viewers were quick to point out
an easy-to-miss detail about Dellegatto’s at-home
set-up: On his desk, he has a framed photo of Brody.
“You don’t truly love your pets if you don’t
have prominently displayed, framed pictures
of them in your house,” one person joked
