BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Included in theses News Be Funny Bloopers is a clip from 2005 in which Ball State University student Brian Collins coined the phrase “Boom goes the dynamite.”
Collins became popular not from using the phrase but because of his unfortunate circumstances surrounding his appearance on Ball State University’s campus newscast in place of the regular sportscaster, who was ill.
The teleprompter was operational, but an inexperienced operator accidentally fast-forwarded through the script, leaving Collins with no choice but to ad-lib most of his script.
Among the games Collins had to report on was the March 22, 2005 NBA game between the Indiana Pacers and New Jersey Nets. The phrase can be heard as Pacers shooting guard Fred Jones hits a 3 with 2:03 left in the first quarter.
Collins had coined the phrase earlier in his freshman year while playing the video game Super Mario Kart with his college roommates. The group had enjoyed coming up with new phrases to shout during moments of triumph in the game.
