WTVY Web Wednesday
Every Wednesday, News 4 This Morning takes a look at the lighter stories from our show that viewers and readers are talking about on our webchannel and related social media.
A man in Texas spent a year and a half on a personal project to transform a Corvette into a replica of the Batmobile from the popular Batman movie series. On our webchannel, a user named Donald says he'd love to have a car like that and then goes on to say, "Well that man needs to be out fighting crime. Next he needs to turn his garage into a bat cave." And, on our Facebook page, Natalie Stanfield exclaims, "I want this!!!!!!!! Love corvettes and Batman!!!!!!!"
As part of our week-long look back at defunct and discontinued stores and restaurants, News 4 This Morning took a look back at Showbiz Pizza Place. Popular in the 80s, it was a family destination for pizza, games, and entertainment. Many remembered the establishment, and the article got over 220 likes on our Facebook page. Jason Hobbs says, "I still have tokens. Had lots of birthdays there. Great big pizzas. Ski ball, ski ball, skiball! I love ski ball." Callie McArdle responded to the article with, "This was always my favorite place to go as a kid.. Would be nice if it was still open for me to take my kids..." And Anna Peoples remembers that "my sister was terrified of the gorilla that played there piano. ..i remember that the most lol"
Another popular story from the morning show involved a viral video filmed by a woman of her cat in a shark costume riding a Roomba, a small automated vacuum cleaner. Michael McClean says that, "My wife and I cracked up watching that this morning! I just showed it to my co-worker here in Tally and he's laughing too. Talk about one laid back cat!" And, Kim Moye responded, "That's funny. My youngest likes to ride mine. He started when he was about 1. It does look fun." The article got over 80 likes on Facebook alone.
