With his “Twister” notoriety long behind him, KWTV Channel 9 meteorologist Gary England was thrust back into the national spotlight thanks to a ribbing from Jon Stewart on a June 14 “The Daily Show” segment. (YouTube video)
Stewart made fun of England’s currently airing tornado promo, which depicts a frightened family running for shelter as a cyclone looms. In their shelter, a mother comforts her child by stroking his head and saying, not so convincingly, “Listen to Gary England. He’s going to let us know it’s OK.”
Stewart called it “the freakiest” television spot he had ever seen.
