On Thursday, a Facebook page called Newsfeed began broadcasting what appeared to be a live video of a huge electrical storm.

Tens of thousands of people were watching at the same time, and when the stream ended three hours and 50 minutes later, the Facebook Live video had more than 22 million views.

Just one small problem, however: It wasn’t a “live” video at all, but a five-second GIF that kept on repeating itself.
