Shirtless man discovers TV reporters are hot, asks for a date (video)

courtney-friel-grab.jpgKTLA's Courtney Friel was covering the afternoon's brush fire in the Inland Empire foothills on Wednesday when she asked a shirtless man carrying a dog if he was fleeing the flames. He said no, he lives down the street and was just checking out the "pretty cool" fire. His first line, however, made him go a little viral on YouTube. "Wow you're super pretty," he opened. "Do you want to go on a date sometime?"

Friel's reply: "You're on the air live right now on KTLA, actually."

After that, I thought her live report became a bit...flustered.
