The Weather Channel takes ruined live-stream of Georgia Dome implosion in stride
Publish date:

If you’ve been anywhere near an internet connection in the last day, surely you’ve seen The Weather Channel’s attempt to film the implosion of the Georgia Dome being thwarted by a MARTA bus that pulled in front of the camera at the most inopportune time.

The Weather Channel reportedly had been camped out for 40 minutes in a perfect spot to live-stream the coming destruction, when this happened:

That bizarre moment inspired a flow of funny sports-theme memes, including this one from Sports Illustrated:

And the opportunity to exact some good-natured ribbing didn’t get by some of Atlanta’s pro sports teams:

Even James Crugnale, associate science editor at The Weather Channel, was able to joke about it, eventually:

Please give full credit for filming the epic bus photobomb to my colleague Jason Rudge (@Jason_R_Rudge)! I just GIFed it for posterity and didn't know this was going to become such a monster meme!

The San Jose Sharks also got into the action:
