The clip seemed on KOIN 6, an American radio station, and was uploaded to YouTube channel The Hidden Underbelly 2.0 shortly afterwards.
Since then, it has racked up almost 90,000 views and a series of comments.
One read: “That was a good one. They are showing up on the news cameras now as well.”
And another added: “Awesome video and news broadcast. Couldn’t have been some-more real.
“What will the critics say, that it was a lens flair? we don’t consider so. That was the genuine deal.”
