There’s an old joke in TV broadcasting that news anchors aren’t wearing pants behind their desks. It’s appealing because not wearing pants is always funny, and because it touches on the inherent artificiality of live TV. But I have discovered an example of this trope that puts a new spin on it – a video of Spanish TV anchor Patricia Conde with an unbelievably short skirt behind her desk.
Now, this is Spanish TV we’re talking about, so it seems a little unlikely that Patricia Conde’s short skirt wasn’t intended to be seen by the viewing audience at home. But she is sitting behind a desk, so my hat is off to the camera operator and director for getting this truly great shot and capturing a piece of television magic.
You can watch that TV magic by checking out Patricia Conde’s absurdly short skirt in the video below. And if this makes you want to see more from the anchor, or you just want to brush up on your Spanish, check out her official blog right here.
