If you watched the series premiere of The Jim Jefferies Show, you were treated to the introduction of a very special guest. That’s right: It was The Jim Jefferies Show weatherman. But just who is this weather whiz, and why did he cause such a stir last night? After all, it’s flat-out strange that a brief appearance from an unknown contributor would create such a splash.
Let’s go to the clip and see if we can piece together a theory about why everyone is gaga for this fresh-faced map jockey.
POSSIBILITY 1: HIS FASHION-FORWARD LOOK
The tan jacket that blends perhaps a little too well with the map behind him. The exceptionally wide tie with its inscrutable design. This is the look of a man who’s two steps ahead of the weatherman fashion game, and the fans love him for it.
POSSIBILITY 2: HE HAS A REAL WAY WITH THAT WEATHER MAP
Pointing out weather patterns on a big map is standard weatherman stuff, but notice the grace and sensuality this rising star exhibits with every movement. Sure, he misses North America completely when he’s gesturing, but that just adds to his air of sexy mystery.
POSSIBILITY 3: HIS REFRESHINGLY NIHILISTIC OUTLOOK
Even in the face of cataclysmic climate change, most meteorologists won’t admit that we’re completely hopeless, waiting for the end of a world we’ve damaged irreparably. But that’s what makes this weatherman different! “There is no future,” he says, his demeanor as chipper as ever. It’s the kind of fresh, honest take that today’s pessimistic audience can really sink its teeth into.
We still don’t know exactly who this guy is or why everyone is freaking out about him, but then again, it’s only the show’s first episode. There’s still time to learn. Whoever he is, we have a feeling we’re all witnessing the beginning of a long and successful career.
