A broadcast from Los Angeles, covering last night’s Grammy’s, went horribly wrong for one CBS reporter who became the butt of a viral Internet joke after suffering what appeared to be a stroke. Reporter Serene Branson was hospitalized after she was suddenly unable to speak coherently and her condition was still unknown at time of this video’s publication.

This video was broadcast by KCBS LA on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2011.
