You may have seen the video: two magicians make a scene behind a seemingly clueless journalist during a "live" news report in Westminster, London. The elaborate photobomb is a far cry from scene-stealers who opt to stick out their tongues or moon the camera.
As it turns out, stone-faced journalist Ashish Joshi was in on it.
Sky News burst eager audiences' collective bubbles with the following Tweet on Friday:
Young and Strange, the magicians behind the ploy, delivered a convincing act.
Real or not, the playful prank is still one worth watching.
See for yourself with the video above.
