WTOL, a local news station in Toledo, Ohio, wished the city'spublic school students good luck during its standardized testing week by speaking the language of the Youths. Like a mediocre Soundcloud rapper dropping tracks nobody asked for, the anchors dropped more hip slang than any Gen Z mad lib could call for.
The segment opened with a pained "YEEET."
"Stay woke, beyond fleek, and get that Gucci breakfast," the anchor continued before another hopped in with, "GOOOAAAALS! Say 'bye Felicia' to that testing stress!"
Apparently Toledo will experience "a hundo p chance of success" during testing week. Highlights include two fully grown men dropping a Cardi B-inspired "OKURRRR" and exclaiming "FOMO won't be an issue!" while reporting on traffic around schools.
In the words of WTOL, be "extra extra" in your studies.
Whew. Although this segment was a well-intentioned attempt at connecting with teenagers, trying to use any generation's lingo without actually understanding it rarely goes well.
