TV News Anchor Responds To Fire Alarm In The Most British Way—And We Love It
4 months ago

An anchor on British news program ITV named Tom Bradby has won the Internet's hearts with his absurdly polite apology for leaving a burning building. Mashable reports that on Wednesday, Bradby was delivering the news when a fire alarm was set off somewhere in the building. Everyone had to evacuate, just in case it was a legitimate threat, but Bradby seems incredibly embarrassed that anything so unseemly as a fire would keep him from doing his job.

This clip of Bradby apologizing over and over and promising to return as soon as it was safe to do so is adorable and it will also have you screaming, "Go, man, go!! Get out of here! Why hasn't he left yet?!"

Everyone is saying that Bradby's delivery is about the most British fire announcement in history, and the British themselves sure love it:

But after all that, it turns out that it was a false alarm, as Bradby again apologized for later:

I literally giggled writing this entire story, and would like to salute Bradby's courage under imaginary fire, as does everyone else:

So thrilled everyone is safe, especially this jewel of Britain.
