In December 2014, revered TV 3 News political reporter Patrick Gower was featured in a viral YouTube clip that appeared to be an outtake from a recent news report.

Patrick is shown standing in a library about to give a report to the camera when a person in the background yells out "[something something] This is a fucking library".

Patrick responded without hesitation "This is the fucking news!".

And so another legendary catchphrase burned itself into the nation's minds and immediately reached the top 10 best ever kiwi lines. Patrick has achieved god status in the country and we wonder how much this line gets yelled out at him in public.

Eventually it was learned that this clip was for some skit at a law school. But who cares? It's fucking awesome.

Travelling Notes

If you see Patrick Gower around, be sure to yell out "This is the fucking news!". He'll fucking love it
