Laughable 1992 KXAS promo touts a spooky town DART investigation

Promos for must-see local news stories regularly go off the rails. But none more so than this April 1992, pre-DART "Ticket To Ride?" spot from KXAS-TV (now better known as NBC5).

A horror movie motif sets the stage before anchors Jane McGarry and a notably trimmer Mike Snyder contribute their intonations.

"Is this really rapid rail or a multi-million dollar r-r-ripoff?" Snyder asks in his patented accusatory tone after sneaking up behind McGarry. Truly hysterical. Enjoy.
