I wish more news reporters had the vision to do something like this.  Basically you have two options when reporting about a boring parade.  1: Do a boring report on a boring parade or 2: Let a hilarious drunk guy do a report on a boring parade.  Good choice reporter, good choice.

Is it wrong that he's spent the whole morning drinking beer and eating donuts?  Probably, but did it make the parade more exciting?  Definitely!

BTW, yelling "HEY YOU IN THE GREEN"! at a St. Patty's Day parade probably isn't going to work.
