Watch News Anchors Lose Their Minds Over the Pumpkin Spice Latte

A brilliant supercut from Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

Starbucks has been releasing its caloric, entirely pumpkin-less autumnal special the Pumpkin Spice Latte every September for the last 15 years — and yet, new anchors still get irrationally excited about its arrival each fall. The team behind Last Week Tonight With John Oliver put together this delightful supercut of anchors on local and national news shows losing their damn minds over this liquid harbinger of autumn. Shouty finance bro Jim “Mad Money” Cramer is especially fond of this beverage, while Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson wonders if the drink is actually racist, somehow. Watch all the PSL hot takes (with some NSFW narration) in the clip above.
