    Any chance this was an actual spontaneous event and not something that was staged in advance and crafted to go viral?

    Dollars to donuts the answer is no.Report

      I believe the host in that he himself didn’t set it up. I believe the Woodhouse boys notified their mom (and their friends and professional colleagues) “hey we’re going to be on C-Span”

      I believe Mom decided to watch her sons on the TV, and, while watching, decided to call the number on the screen. I believe the call screener instantly realized what he or she had, and jumped Mrs. Woodhouse to the top of the queue.Report

      If it was any network but CSPAN, I’d say it was a fake. CSPAN is not known for trying to a) drum up ratings or b) create viral internet videos*. I’d call it legit

      * Aside from the genre of videos showing people who call in to CSPAN shows to swear a bunch before getting cut offReport

  3. I almost never Facebook things and I Facebooked the hell out of that. Hilarious.Report
