“What are we doing, brother?” Hyde said at the same time, turning his attention to the laughs that occurred off-screen before turning around to address the question. They both seemed visibly upset with the question, which was asked by Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo (NY) WIVB television station.

Hyde ended his reply by saying, “That’s funny. We’ll remember it.” That interaction was awkward enough, but Hyde had one more thing to say as he left the podium.

“I come here every week and I answer your questions honestly, honestly,” Hyde told Sullivan. “Thank you guys. Don’t do that.”
