This is one of the greatest TV moments of all time. I mean, when you can get a line such as “The blast blasted blubber beyond all believable bounds” inside a serious news report, your name should be immortalized and a monument should be made in your honor.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the infamous beached whale incident that took place in Florence, Oregon on November 12th 1970, the Oregon Historical Society arranged for a 4K transfer of the original raw film footage from their archive. KATU has re-edited the package from the new high resolution video. Enjoy!
The event even has a Wikipedia page dedicated to it!
