Following a resurfaced video clip of morning show host Nida Yasir’s poorly researched interview, social media was flooded with memes. Inspired by the trolls taking the mickey out of his wife, Yasir Nawaz also recreated a video of the viral clip.
Back in May 2016, the popular host interviewed Abdul Aleem and Mohammad Shariq War on her show Good Morning Pakistan on ARY Digital.
Those two young men were part of an NUST team that built an electric racing car, and they were headed to the US to compete in Formula Student. They had both joined the host in hopes of shedding light on their project but found themselves baffled by Yasir’s questions.
On Twitter, a video clip of Nida asking them inane questions about Formula 1 racing cars was shared. Nida seemed to have poorly researched before calling her guests on the show.
In the video, the Naadaaniyan star asks the guests about how race cars actually work. Next, the host asks whether the Formula cars have more than one passenger seat. To which, Aleem responded, “Actually, it is a formula car. So only one person can sit.” Nida then quipped, “Oh, so it’s just a formula for now? Have you done any experiments on any cars?”
Despite being baffled, the engineers stayed calm and responded, “No, it’s a formula car. We’ve made one. It’s a racecar.” Nida then questioned, “So, does it drive as fast as a petrol car?”
The video left most people shaking their heads. Many trolled the host for asking illogical answers. Yasir Nawaz, too, did not spare his wife and recreated the viral video. It certainly could not get any funnier!
Have a look at it:
Looks like netizens are enjoying the video!
Responding to the trolling earlier, the host had said, “After watching this clip, I am laughing myself”.
“I also find it ridiculous. Having made a mistake, I am now laughing at it. I will, however, do my best to research my topics thoroughly before speaking next time.”
“It happened so long ago, I don’t even remember what happened,” she added. “If I could recall what went down, I certainly could explain why I asked such inane questions. I am very proud of the fact that I have produced thousands of very good shows, which have received really good feedback, but nothing I put in them ever becomes viral, and this saddens me.”
It may be recalled that Nida previously made it to the headlines for ignoring social distancing in her morning show during the coronavirus pandemic.
