Karl Stefanovic's signature disregard for professionalism was magnificent on this morning's episode of the Today Show, in which the Gold Logie-winning anchor was unable to keep any semblance of composure during a live cross with a pair of heroic surfers. Gold Coast based dudes Angus McNicol and Nick Chalmers have been credited with saving the lives of two tourists who were swept into rough water on Wednesday evening, risking their lives to pull the pair to safety, a story that is actually kind ofhilarious if you're Karl Stefanovic and the interviewees are 20% hair and 100% chill vibes.

Watch the footage below that will go down in the Classic Karl Pantheon, along with moments like "Drunk Logies Karl" and "Accidental Jack-Off Karl". Highlights of the latest Pantheon entrant worth noting include the trademark Karl Fist Pump at the 2.20 minute mark, and his awesome attempt at surfer-speak ("frothin' all weekend!").



We should also give a quick plug to one of the heroes, Nick Chalmers, a talented artist/designer/filmmaker who's appearing on the lineup at Bleach Festival on the Gold Coast later this month. Buy the guy a beer.
