Yesterday world-famous Edward “Edward S.” Snowden joined popular microblogging platform Twitter, and HLN covered the story by talking to the very funny Twitter user @Fart, aka Jon Hendren.

Described as a “Snowden Supporter,” Hendren video chatted into the studio on the HLN TV, and trolled the HLN reporter by not talking about Snowden at all, instead focusing all his energy on a different Edward S.: Tim Burton film character Edward Scissorhands. The result is kinda beautiful.

Towards the end Hendren eloquently sums up the guilt we all feel about Edward S. “We cast him out.“ Hendren says, "We got scared when he poked a hole in a waterbed with his scissor fingers, and that was unreasonable of us.”



UPDATE: Apparently HLN was hoping to book John Hendren. TV is hard. (h/t NYMag)
