Epic Rant: Stop Photographing Snow Covered Patios! Response Shows Patios Are Still Loved

The world is full of rants so you should be very careful about the ones you choose to listen to. Colorado’s 9NEWS at 6 p.m news co-anchor Kyle Clark was fed up with the huge amounts of snow photos his desk was getting.

Epic Rant: Stop Photographing Snow Covered Patios! Response Shows Patios Are Still Loved

This drove him to an epic two minutes of an epic rant about snow covered patio shots.

While he shows some empathy with the shooters he want the viewers to make a better effort of capturing winter:

Listen, I know why we take photos of snow covered patio sets, its easy – point your camera out the window and click…

… Coloradans are too optimistic to live in prison patio sets! What a sad way to celebrate the new season ‘well, guess we can’t sit outside any more’.
If we asked you for pictures of springtime would you really send us a photo your skis in a closet? No! It’s depressing! Come on Colorado we love winter! We OWN winter! So let’s see some photos that look like it next time it snows, please I’m begging you.

While this is one of the best rants I’ve seen to date, Kyle took some backlash. Some of which he shared on his twitter account.

    What a jerk since when was this about him, I thought it was about the viewers. Fire this A$$hol3

      Didn’t watch the video did you? If all you did was read the negatively written spin, you completely missed the real message.

      Fire the Asshole?? I would say “Give him a medal!”. Seriously it was funny and it was true. Who wants to see images of garden furniture in the snow? If all the people took a few steps outside and looked for an interesting subject, instead of sitting in their living room pointing the camera out the window, there would be much better images to show.

    Looks like some people aren’t catching the satire in this.
