Cracked.com’s Soren Bowie recently took a ride on the TMZ Hollywood Tour to provide a first-hand account of the celebrity safari. While Bowie and his co-passengers on TMZ’s open-air bus did not spot any tabloid headline-worthy celebs, they did catch a glimpse of veteran KNBC reporter Cary Berglund:
Near the end of our trip we were idling next to the hotel where Verne Troyer made his sex tape, and it finally happened. A celebrity crept anxiously out of the foliage across the street and cocked its head, deciding whether it wanted to run away or not. Everyone went silent and stared. It was Cary Berglund, a local reporter for the channel 4 News…
He waited for the traffic to clear and then strolled toward our bus, waving. Our guide turned to the tour and covered his microphone with a hand. “Quickly, does anyone here want to talk to him or have a picture taken?”
“Good,” he said, and our bus lurched out into the road. I watched as Cary realized what was happening, and being the consummate professional, the smile never left his face.
