News Anchor, Pranked By Co-Anchor, Licks iPad On Live TV

San Diego morning show viewers were treated to Martinez pretending to describe an amazing new iPad app that allowed users to “smell” and “taste” food right on their tablet.

Martinez demonstrated with his phone, insisting he could smell something. When Zomorodi was handed an iPad, she failed to smell anything and her friendly co-anchor urged her to try tasting it. And she did.
