Leave it to the US to have a comedian represent us in Copenhagen

I'd heard last week, during the beginning of the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen, that Grist.org was sending a comedian, Eugene Mirman, who had only a basic knowledge of what was going on there to cover the events.

At first I thought this was ridiculous and just giving us a bad name there (though I also think that was already achieved before this guy came along). And then I realized that he's just lightening the tension and intensity amidst all of the serious events there (that don't seem to be very hopeful at this point).

So watch these videos of Eugene harass protesters in the streets of Copenhagen and his hilarious attempts at journalism - at least to give yourself a chuckle today.
