Latest Viral Video: Creepy Canadian Game Show Host Fergie Olver
The latest viral video shooting up the charts isn't a teacher smashing a violin or a group of kids performing "Scarface." It's a montage of creepy former Canadian game show host Fergie Olver kissing little girls.
Olver was the host of a Canadian game show called "Just Like Mom." According to TVArchive.ca, the show aired from 1980 to 1987 and featured mothers and daughters answering questions separately; points were awarded for matching answers.
Sounds harmless enough -- sort of like "The Newlywed Game" except with mothers and daughters. The creepy part is that Olver, a former Toronto Blue Jays broadcaster, seems to enjoy kissing the little girls a bit too much. And he doesn't take no for an answer: As Olver himself puts it, "The mothers are always so easy to kiss ... it's the kids!"
Olver hosted the show with his then-wife Catherine Swing, who was Miss Canada 1978, according to IMDB. They are now divorced.
Many blogs have noted that in this video, Olver's antics make the kissy-face routines of Richard Dawson and Bob Barker seem tame by comparison -- at least those game show hosts showed more interest in grown-ups. We're not saying that Mr. Olver should have received a visit from NBC's Chris Hansen, but is it creepy? We think so.
What do you think? Creepy video? Or no big deal?
