At WGN in Chicago they were getting pretty tired of people who were doing crazy things behind the field reporters when they were giving live reports. So, they decided to take matters into their own hands with this little social experiment.

The reporter did his little experiment at the Auto Show where there was a ton of people. Sure enough, a bunch of them took the bait and he caught them mid wave and invited them over to talk to him on "live tv". Well it wasn't really live, they were being recorded. However, he asked them a slew of embarrassing questions that made them look silly.

Hopefully all will think twice before waving at a field reporter again.
