Chuck Todd Is The First Victim Of MSNBC's New 'Lean Forward' Slogan (VIDEO)

As part of two-year re-branding ad campaign, the liberal cable news network MSNBC has begun using the tag line "lean forward."

Savannah Guthrie, co-host of the 9 AM MSNBC political show 'The Daily Rundown,' appeared on 'Morning Joe' (weekdays, 6 AM on MSNBC) Monday, and it gave the gang an opportunity to have fun with the new slogan.

As Joe Scarborough reminded viewers to check out the 'The Daily Rundown' 'after 'Morning Joe' was finished, a promotional picture of Guthrie and her co-host Chuck Todd appeared on the screen.

"That's a snazzy shot by the way," Scarborough commented. "Sort of a prom picture."

"Chuck's leaning forward a little too much," Willie Geist quipped, in reference to how close the two anchors were standing to each other in the photo.

Something the tells us this is just the first of many, many "lean forward" jokes.
