Live! With Kelly And Michael Interrupted By Alarm — WATCH VIDEO HERE
“Live! With Kelly and Michael” got off to a rather loud start on Monday when an alarm blared for nearly the first four minutes of the show. Watch below.
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan had just taken their seats and were beginning their routine introductions when a noise started sounding. Part-buzzing, part-ringing, the hosts were understandably perplexed. “What is that?” exclaimed Strahan. Ripa asked the crew, “Should we be concerned with that?” She then deadpanned, “I’m sure that’s not dangerous to anyone here. Unless it is.”
“It’s a good thing this isn’t live TV,” Ripa went on to crack. Strahan then amusingly shouted, “We’ll just yell for the rest of the show!” The two then improvised about the cause of the alarm, leading Ripa to joke, “Maybe it’s me! Maybe I should go back on vacation!”
Despite the “noisy elephant in the room” that just wouldn’t “shut up,” they were encouraged to keep talking as normal, as the sound supposedly wasn’t “as bad” at home. Video, however, suggests otherwise. Nevertheless, Ripa and Strahan tried to make the best of the situation until, finally, the alarm stopped.
The audience cheered, Ripa and Strahan rejoiced, and all was right in the world again. Check out the awkward clip below.
