Boom goes the dynamite

Did you wonder what Will Smith meant at the Oscars, when he said boom goes the dynamite after screwing up his lines.

Well, meet Brian Collins who in 2004 agreed to fill in for a friend on Ball State University's campus newscast during his freshman year providing sports highlights. When the tele prompter failed and printed copies were not in order, he improvised.

The newscast is now known as the Collins incident in communications classes. Collins now works for a news station in Waco Texas and probably cringed when Smith said the line.

The improv part was the best overall!
