In trending news this morning, Drew Carey gets tackled to the ground on live television, Dundee rumors are laid to rest, and Burger King explains net neutrality in a creative social experiment.
First up, a woman named Sona was so excited to be a contestant on The Price is Right that when she was called on stage she gave Drew Carey an enthusiastic hug that knocked him down to the floor and nearly off the stage on Wednesday's show.
Fortunately no hosts, contestants or set pieces were harmed in the making of this episode. The Price is Right airs weekdays at 10 a.m. right here on KBTX.
Also trending, when a teaser for "Dundee," supposedly a "Crocodile Dundee" reboot starring comic actor Danny McBride popped up recently, people in Hollywood had never heard of it. When a second teaser appeared featuring Chris Hemsworth, a "Tourism Australia" ambassador, suspicions grew.
Now an Aussie newspaper cites "industry sources" that's it's all part of an Australian tourism ad campaign, planned for next month's Super Bowl broadcast. So when you prep your feast for the big game, throw another shrimp on the barbie!
Lastly, Burger King wants to help Americans understand net neutrality. The company released an ad called "Whopper Neutrality" on Wednesday. The ad is framed as a social experiment and a statement against last month's move to repeal Obama-era internet protections.
It shows customers discovering that paying the typical whopper price will get them slower service. Burger King said in a YouTube description of the video that it "believes the internet should be like the whopper sandwich: the same for everyone."
