Reporter Has No Idea His Facebook Filters Are On During A Live Report, And The Broadcast Is Hilarious

A North Carolina TV reporter just pulled a Shaukat Yousafzai. Like the Pakistani politician, WLOS ABC 13 reporter Justin Hinton went on a live broadcast with wacky Facebook filters on.

Moments before the news report, Hinton accidentally turned on the feature and was completely unaware of it. So, as he was solemnly performing his weatherman duties reporting about the snowfall near Asheville, N.C., Hinton tried on a fedora, a pair of googly eyes, cat ears, a blue wizard hat, and a few more props. At one point, he even appeared with a fake flashlight under his chin. As if he was reporting about a spooky ghost encounter instead.

In areas where heavy snowfalls aren’t common and drivers aren’t very familiar with slippery roads, weather reports like this one can be a useful way to remind them to remain extra careful while sitting behind the wheel. But with the added comedy on video filters? They’re priceless.

Here’s the amusing clip

The Emmy-winning journalist found out about his animated Facebook live makeover only after reading the comments viewers left under the video on Facebook. “Wait, Misty, did I have a weird face?” a flabbergasted Hinton can be heard asking a colleague off-camera. After a long pause, he adds, “Oh, there are special effects on the phone.”

This is what LOL was invented for. Love it. Really don't care if it was planned as others have insinuated. Still funny. I don't think it was deliberate. Even funnier.
