Local News Channel Fake Live Accident, Fail Miserably



It must have been a quiet day for Fox 13 in Utah yesterday, after their attempt to fake an accident during a live broadcast failed both hilariously and miserably.

The scene – which I have now watched roughly ten times due to the hilarity of it – happened at around 9.05am local time, and shows a girl pretending to faint after almost being ‘knocked down’ by a man in an SUV.

The video has now gone viral on Reddit, for obvious reasons, and has racked up over 200,000 views on YouTube – which is testament to the news anchor who set it up, who has achieved what she wanted for all the wrong reasons.

This is gold.


UPDATE: Video has been taken down, you can view it here.
