Mom Swears She Sees Giraffe During News Broadcast Until Daughter Hits Rewind

In this hilarious video, a mom swears that she has seen a giraffe running across the screen during a news broadcast. But when her daughter rewinds the footage and they see what it really is, the two have a good laugh.


While watching a TV news report one evening, Alison Williams could not believe her eyes. She was certain that she had just seen an animal that you might find at the zoo or in the African savanna running at full speed behind the news anchor.

“I'm sure I've just seen a giraffe running really fast in the background,” said Alison as she grabbed the remote.

After rewinding the short clip, the “giraffe” was actually a giant yellow crane being driven across the road.

Alison and her daughter, Kate, can be heard erupting into a fit of laughter after watching the replay of the moment. What a hilarious mistake!

Kate posted the funny reaction on Facebook and it went viral, with it being viewed 21 million times and shared over 250,000 times. She captioned the video: “My mum just had to rewind the news because she swore blind she saw a giraffe running in the background... Absolutely dead.”

But with the yellow crane moving at that high speed, it is possible to see how Alison could have mistaken it for something else.

“I had to watch it 5 times to figure out what it was,” wrote one Facebook user after viewing the footage.

Another Facebook user comments on how much the video makes her laugh. “I’ve seen this a million times and still cry with laughter.”

Laughter is truly the best medicine. Thanks to this funny mistake that Alison made and Kate captured on video, many other people have been able to share in the joy and laughter of this moment.

My mum just had to rewind the news because she swore blind she saw a giraffe running in the background... Absolutely dead 😂😂😂
