While many people dream about being a rock star, actual rock star Ryan Adams has a different dream: reporting the weather on a local news broadcast!
The 43-year-old rocker can finally check that tick off his bucket list now after delivering a weather forecast during the evening newscast of Denver’s ABC affiliate in advance of his performance at Red Rocks.
In the hilarious video, viewers learn that Adams cut a deal with the newscast by writing an original song for the show in exchange for filling viewers’ meteorological needs via his own forecast.
First, however, came the song, in which Adams plaintively pleads, “Can you let me do the weather one time?” while accompanied by hilarious animation that leaves him highly impressed.
Then came his big moment in front of the green screen (which apparently involved a bit of explanation) as Adams informed Denver TV viewers about what the next few days would be like weather-wise.
So how’d he do? Watch the video above to find out.
