We're MESMERIZED by this child who appears to teleport during a news interview
*watches 7,008,975 times, still can't make sense of it.
It's honestly like something out of Harry Potter or the TARDIS in Doctor Who, but the internet is going wild over a kid who appears to teleport in the background of a BBC news interview.
The incident occurred earlier this week, during a BBC interview about Theresa May's leadership when a small child appeared to materialize out of thin air behind the interview subject.
It's honestly one of the most bizarre things to emerge from the UK of late, and that's saying something!
WTF... does anyone else see the child teleport? pic.twitter.com/P0ju9J9cby

The responses that followed on Twitter, were as you'd imagine, top notch.

People joked that it could be a "glitch in the matrix" and a "break in the time continuum" or that the Illuminati were at the centre of it, but it seems more likely that it happened due to poor editing.
While this may have been a genuine cut to produce something succinct, others believed it to be evidence of propaganda:
Just more evidence of the BBC editing clips to produce distorted news.

No doubt editing to suit the agenda.

Tom Richell, the Head of Video at British news website, The Independent in a tweet confirmed that the error was indeed down to editing and assured people that the BBC were not trying to alter the context.
So obviously, despite claims, he's not teleporting (shame imo). It has been edited, but hang fire on the BBC bashing please https://t.co/XQBG9q743Q
