Below you will find what has to be the greatest YouTube clip showing American reaction to the selection of the new pope — or any pope.
The action took place on the campus of St. Joseph’s Preparatory School, which bills itself as Philadelphia’s Jesuit school. The news anchor is attempting to speak to Rev. George W. Bur, S.J., the school’s president, possibly because Pope Francis is the first Jesuit to hold the position (and possibly just because NBC 10 Philadelphia just wanted to talk to some Catholics).
According to the Reddit user (Freenarth) who turned the YouTube clip into a viral sensation, the kid who gave the live-television wet willie is now facing suspension.
Was it worth it? Probably.
