A video of Fox News anchor Bret Baier rapping on stage to The Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” at a recent event went viral Friday night after a producer on his show posted the video on Twitter.
“In the video, Baier performs the song’s signature chorus alongside members of the group at a party for Fox News staffers celebrating Baier’s 10 year anniversary of anchoring the program, according to a Fox News source,” The Hill reported. “Baier is clad in a festive red jacket emblazoned with green Christmas trees while singing words to the 1980 smash hit.”
