My brother, upon reading about my idea for comparative weather reports, reminded me of another innovative weather reporting phenomenon: nude weather reports! This was a concept originally developed by Czech TV station TV Nova. Here is how Brad Freden described it to David Barry:
At 11 p.m. every night a buxom woman or (more recently) a muscular young man goes on camera stark naked. He or she then does a reverse strip tease as the announcer reads the weather forecast. The amount and type of clothes he/she puts on depends on the forecast.
I was wondering why nobody has yet copied this in the US, but then I remembered that Americans have always preferred violence to sex. And personally, I’d rather seeAl Roker nocked over than naked.
