A local CBS reporter in California was fired after he jumped on several classic cars during a live news segment, damaging one of them in the process. 

Angel Cardenas, a correspondent with KMAX-TV’s “Good Morning Sacramento,” was on air Sunday at the Sacramento International Auto Show, a weekend-long event at Cal Expo.

Cardenas boldly tells viewers “the only person out here is a media coordinator, [the event] doesn’t start until later in the day… no one is out here to tell me which car I can’t go in, cause some of these are off-limits, so I’m just gonna live on the wild side.” He then gets on top of a yellow Ford Thunderbird and laying on his side, posing on the car.

“I feel like a kid in a candy store without the owners because you can do anything,” Cardenas says. He then moves on to another car, a pink Thunderbird, and opens the driver’s side door — which dings into another vehicle sitting next to it.

The cameraman ultimately zooms in on the spot where the door hit the neighboring vehicle, revealing the damage

Cardenas later crosses through a barrier around a Ford Explorer and hops on top of the hood of the car.

“I would get off that now,” one of the two on-air hosts tells Cardenas from the studio. He gets off moments later, saying someone in the auto show told him to.

Not too bright. Have a look at the astonishingly awful video below.
