Many dream of reporting live from remote locations, broadcasting through torrential downpour or dangerous gunfire. At the Newseum, these hopefuls can live out their dreams, standing behind a fake news desk and reading a teleprompter in front of a green screen.

Thanks to the Newseum’s YouTube channel, which features hundreds of fake broadcast videos, you can watch these citizens live out their dreams, and it is oh so beautiful.

First, may we present Dancin’ Ashley.

And now, the extremely excited Boo Boo, who is very worried about thunderstorms and your well-being.

Here’s Maddie, with a beautiful song.

This guy’s pants are very nice.

Watch Ben Dover (…) battle stage fright valiantly.

And finally, Jo, who seems oblivious to the fact that he is on camera, and that the video of him will in fact be on the Internet forever.
