Some of the video clips that flashed across the MSG Sphere’s 366-foot outdoor screen — a flashing eye, a basketball, the moon — were unbelievable. Considering how many millions of social media users have proven willing to believe anything, it’s no surprise how many fake Sphere screens have tried to capitalize on this disappointing fact.

A video posted on Twitter last week, showing the Israeli flag, was exposed as fake the next day by Sphere itself, but not until it received hundreds of thousands of likes and shares. Even the media fell in love with her, including… Breaking News Network and gossip reporter Perez Hilton, both of whom have yet to delete the posts.

Don’t believe everything that’s going on around you

The original poster for the Israeli video was a Twitter account called “Tallywood,” which is owned by Tal Cooperman, a visual effects artist who works as executive creative director for Station Casinos. The Israeli citizen appears to have created the video not as intentional disinformation, but as a way to show solidarity with the festival-goers who were attacked, killed, and held hostage by Hamas on October 7.
