We around the Newsroom are a little jealous of James Montgomery’s upcoming trip to Chile and Antarctica. He’s going to be “reporting” on Fall Out Boy’s attempt to set the world record for playing all seven continents in the shortest amount of time. (Totally suspect on all fronts, James.) Fall Out Boy are playing to a team of international research scientists in a facility gymnasium. Also, they are flying out there on a private jet owned by the Harlem Globetrotters. It is like an episode of “Scooby Doo”!
We realize this is the third time we’ve written about this trip this week, but we are only hoping that if we mention it enough times, our boss might realize how integral we are to the story and send us down there too.
Anyway, James has totally been in his office avoiding the college basketball brackets and instead discovering all sorts of things to be afraid of while he’s down there. The video below is what he came up with.
