Today is not a good day to be working behind the scenes of the Today Show.
A poor production assistant drew the shortest of short straws this morning when she was asked (forced?) to volunteer for an odd segment we are going call Let’s-see-how-quickly-we-can-get-our-production-assistant-to-cry-on-air.
Actually titled DIY Dad: Ballet buns in a heartbeat, TV presenter and former Better Homes and Gardens chippie Rob Palmer took to the set to demonstrate his unique way of styling his daughter’s hair. Using a vacuum cleaner.
Taking a hairbrush and vacuum cleaner, Palmer took to the production assistant's hair like a cleaner to dirty floorboards: with gusto and without reservation.
The following minute is painful viewing for all those who understand the struggle of having one or two strands of hair pulled fair too tightly in their ponytail, with the vacuum sucking up the stray strands of hair.
