Partly Cloudy With a Chance of Boobs: Scarlett Johansson Does the Weather on ‘Today’ [VIDEO]
When Al Roker couldn’t speak due to a bout of laryngitis, the ‘Today’ show got their next best meteorologist to fill in: actress and apparent weather enthusiast Scarlett Johansson.
How hard could it be if men who call themselves Larry Sprinkle, Sam Champion, Johnny Mountain and Skip Waters do it on a regular basis?
The actress volunteered for the position ‘Hunger Games‘-style because, as she wryly pointed out, she âhas a lot of experience with weather.â As pretty much all of us who live outside an iron lung do.
But since this is all it takes to read the weather off a teleprompter, Johansson was allowed to make her dream of doing the weather with Al Roker come true. Seriously. She literally said that. (Bonus: Her breasts can totally tell when it’s already raining.)
So everyone bundled up, went outside, and ScarJo read the report off a piece of paper. She did a pretty good job, too, complete with game show-like hand motions at a map of the United States. Even if they were rather vague gestures rather than exactly where states are actually located.
But geography aside — watch your back, Roker. Ratings are down at ‘Today,’ and Scarlett the Weather Girl could be the next network superhero.
