An Irish TV station pulled a fast one on its viewers on Halloween that caught everyone off guard. The television station left its viewers stunned with an inventive television prank during their nightly weather forecast. Since airing it was posted on social media where it immediately took off garnering much attention. The station, TG4-TV, proceeded with a normal Halloween broadcast until presenter Caitlín Nic Aoidh began her weather forecast.
After showing a map that indicated that the broadcast station was in an area with intense lightning, the broadcast appeared to show the presenter being struck by lightning and disappearing, followed by disruption, and then a static signal.
