NEW YORK, New York —  They defined 90’s morning television, Bryant Gumble and Katie Couric.

Nothing could stop the legendary TODAY Show anchor team.

Until the internet.

In 1994 the duo was faced with an email address on-air and it confused, astounded and even irritated them.  They simply didn’t understand what the @ symbol.

“What is internet anyway?” Gumble quipped.

21 years later that clip has been relived and replayed on YouTube millions of times to millions of laughs.

Both anchors have moved on to new projects and new lives.  Couric is even an anchor on internet giant Yahoo.com.

Now thanks to BMW they are reunited and it is internet perfection.

In 1994, no one knew how big the internet would be.
Not even broadcast journalists Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric.
21 years later, a new big idea has them scratching their heads again.
