Justin Hinton, a newscaster from North Carolina, was all set to deliver a weather report when he had a small mishap, and one he was unaware of. Before doing a quick Facebook Live report about the snow, he accidentally switched on the Facebook Live filters.
In the clip, while Hinton is delivering news about the weather, different filters like googly eyes, dog ears, barbells, fox ears, and wizard hats frame his face. “When you’re trying to do a serious Facebook Live about the weather and you accidentally tap the Mystery Mask filter. Poor Justin Hinton,” the caption reads on the video, which was posted on the station’s Facebook page.
In the video, you can also hear where Justin realizes something was off about his broadcast. “Wait, Misty, did I have a weird face?” He then adds, “Oh, there are special effects on the phone,” before laughing the situation off. He added on his personal account “If you can’t laugh at yourself, what’s the point of laughter?. I hope you enjoyed the snow day, and remember to smile and laugh!”
