FOX 9 meteorologist's glitchy, laugh-filled forecast goes viral, features on Fallon

"I have no idea what that was, but that was brilliant," she said during the segment.

FOX 9 meteorologist Jennifer McDermed made the most of a visual glitch during a May 11 broadcast, laughing and dancing as she watched herself replicated over and over on the screen.

"I have no idea what that was, but that was brilliant, yes it was" she said through laughter while still moving through the forecast. Here's the original clip:

McDermed's good-natured approach has brought her national attention, with The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America and Fox News all getting a kick out of the never-ending train of marching Jennifers.

"That was fun," said Fallon on his Wednesday night monologue, during which he shared snippets of McDermed's glitchy forecast. "It's almost like when you used to win a game of Solitaire on the computer."

Here's the clip from Fallon:

Twitter users also spotted McDermed's segment featured on Good Morning America and on Fox News. Even the UK's Daily Mail picked it up. And McDermed appears to be having a lot of fun with it.
