It’s pothole season in Chicago, and instead of waiting for the roads to fix themselves, some people are taking matters into their own hands.
People of Chicago realize that spring is pothole season. However, they additionally realize that WGN Channel 9 has the best local morning news show, because of clever, laid-back personalities like weatherman Paul Konrad, co-anchors Robin Baumgarten, and Larry Potash, and sports journalist Pat Tomasulo.
The ideal case of the show's rather quirky chemistry has to be the time they were sitting tight for a live shot of a bridge exploding, cut away for a second, and missed it (video below)! Tomasulo may have missed the bridge blow-up segment, however, he's still so well-known that he presently has his very own local late-night show called Man Of The People, where he does late-night-show-type stunts.
On his latest episode, he filled some Chicago potholes with Giardiniera. As the hilarious video shows, Tomasulo got the Giardiniera from Chicago mainstay Vienna Beef, alongside a sack of Italian meat sandwiches. As he playfully fills the pothole with Giardiniera, wearing a city vest, he additionally hurls out meat sandwiches at individuals.
Now and again, those individuals in the video even top off their sandwich with pothole giardiniera, taking their adoration for Chicago to a totally new dimension. At times, vehicles can be seen driving through the pothole, splattering the peppers all over the place.
However, we have such a large number of inquiries. Whose thought was this? What amount giardiniera does it take to fill a pothole? Who tidied everything up after the stunt? Demonstrating that he truly is a man of the people, Pat Tomasulo himself took a couple of minutes to answer numerous inquiries from people.
He clarifies the brainstorming process behind deciding the ideal component for filling the potholes. He said, "We were trying to think of stuff that was very Chicago-centric, like deep-dish pizza, hot dogs. I liked the idea of just buckets of wet Italian beef, but we didn’t want to be too wasteful."
He added, "So we thought giardiniera was a good compromise in that it’s food but it’s more a condiment." Therefore, they got a few industrial-sized buckets from Vienna Beef. In any case, shouldn't something be said about the slipperiness of the oil?
"Well, that is why you would probably be a good television producer because I didn’t think of that until we were on location. It took one car to go through this pothole and it’s incredibly slippery. I didn’t worry about the cars so much as I did the bikers,” Tomasulo stated. Therefore, Tomasulo and his group were certain to tidy up all the giardiniera after the shoot, and filled in the pothole with sand.
