Mike Elgan was shut down time after time for interviews at booths at Mobile World Congress.

Mike Elgan failed spectacularly at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona recently. Booth after booth refused him live, on-camera to grant him an interview about their products.

Elgan then went on to lie about “arranging interviews” ostensibly to save face when Leo ‘n’ Lisa watch the playback for fear of getting insta-fired.

The duo of cameraman and Gumbot is a classic pairing. “We just clotheslined somebody…hope we have insurance,” said Elgan after nearly decapitating a show attendee with their equipment.

Video to come. Story developing…

  1. I’d love them to fire Gum, but honestly the only people left with any kind of on camera speaking ability is Padre, Jason, and Bryan. everyone else sounds like a Studdering Donkey.
    I used to like Megan on the screensavers, but looks like the time away from the camera has stripped her of that……..

    1. The really odd thing about the good Father is how he seems completely comfortable just chatting away not matter if on or off air, but falls flatly on his face whenever he’s using his oratory voice. (intros & some VOs)

  2. Watching paint dry, watching grass grow, writing a 10,000 word essay on the topic of the inside of a ping-pong ball – these are all things I’d rather do than listen to a broadcast about mobile phones.

    Not only are phones the world’s most boring tech topic but Elgan manages to make it substantially worse with the delivery of a Stepford husband(although that is fairly normal for him).
