ABC7 Chicago’s meteorologist Greg Dutra is getting viral on the internet not because of his good looks nor his weather report but because of how he reacted when he discovered his monitor is touchscreen. Greg made his adorable discovery during a live weather report.
The weather report started like usual, Greg pointing to a digital map and telling his viewers where it might rain. But when he touched the screen and the map moved, he realized his map was actually a touchscreen.
This wasn’t in the training manual! @TBrownABC7 @valwarnertv and I go OFF THE RAILS when I discovered the TV is a touch screen while on-air on @ABC7Chicago 😂 pic.twitter.com/almrdxqz3d— Greg Dutra (@DutraWeather) August 4, 2022
“I can do that? No way!” he exclaimed, obviously not containing his excitement.
Greg behaved like a child who just opened his Christmas gift. He’s very enthusiastic testing what else the monitor can do. He is so adorable to watch.
“Are you serious? Did you just discover that?” his morning co-host Val Warner asked off camera.
Co-host Terrell Brown appeared on screen with Greg and joined in on the fun. He was as amazed as Greg and showed the weatherman he can move the map simply by touching it. Evidently, no one had informed Greg about the magic of modern technology.
“Oh man, It’s a great day!” Greg said, smiling from ear to ear.
He tried so hard to continue with his weather report, but his joy could not be denied. He couldn’t stop giggling.
The Twitter video took the internet by storm, racking 3.5 million views, as of this writing. Let’s just say that Greg’s hilarious reaction won millions of hearts.
Special thanks to the staff for not briefing Greg about the touchscreen. He made a lot of people smile and laugh today. We guess the viewers didn’t mind the rainy forecast.
