Local Reporter Mistakes Will.i.am. For Wyclef Jean…Then Calls Him ‘Wah-Lay’ [VIDEO]
Blake Burman was poised and ready to capture the energy inside McCormick Place, and most likely did his homework ahead of Election night.
And then, fate threw a wrench into his perfectly pressed plan.
Berman was all sorts of star-struck as he motioned for the camera man to pan over to Will.i.am, who was giving another interview. “That’s Wyclef Jean giving an interview,” Berman said matter-of-factly. “He is one of the many surrogates, you could say…”
Berman’s producer corrected him off-camera.
“Sorry? Who? What? Wah-lay! Excuse me, Wah-lay. Got my artists mixed up.”
Ugh, my heart hurts for him.
Finally, Berman came to and realized that the gentlman behind him was, in fact, Will.i.am.
