Australian Newscaster Engages in Some Light, Racist Banter

A reader sent in this clip from an Australian newscast last night. It begins with a short item about a lotto winner who showed up in a terrible Spider-Man costume to collect his prize, so he could remain anonymous. Pretty amusing already, but it gets better. The two anchors then share a few laughs over the eccentric guy, who happens to be Chinese, before the elder one launches into a cringe-inducing description of a Chinese person. Then watch how the other guy handles it. It feels like an episode of The Office, but it's real.
