KTTV Anchor Educates the ‘Squares’ on Hotboxing

By Kevin Eck 

KTTV anchor Lauren Sivan gave the unhip cats in the Los Angeles FOX owned station’s viewing audience a lesson in how the cool kids talk about smoking the reefer.

Sivan was talking about the end of a police chase Monday involving a pickup when both she and co-anchor Bob DeCastro saw smoke coming out of the cab after the chase had ended. Both said they thought the suspect inside was getting high. Sivan added, “and Bob I don’t have any experience with this, but I believe the term is hotboxing.”

Urban Dictionary defines hotboxing as “The practice of smoking marijuana in an enclosed space (e.g. a car or a small room) in order to maximize the narcotic effect.”

Both Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel used Sivan’s knowledge drop in their monologues last night.

Here’s Fallon, the jokes come at around 7:40 in:

She also tweeted about the attention.
