Magicians Photobomb 'Live' News Report

How to get a health care news report to go viral? Throw in a magic act.

In what quickly became a viral video, two magicians called Young & Strange, perform a magic trick in the background of a Sky News report on NHS reform. Speaking before Westminster Palace, reporter Ashish Joshi appears to be completely oblivious to magic show going on behind him. 

As it later turned out, however, Joshi and even Sky News were in on the joke. 

After the staged photobomb was picked up by the Huffington Post, Metro, and the Sun Nation website, Sky News had to release the following statement to clear things up: "We'd like to clarify that the Ashish Joshi video with the magicians in the background is not a Sky News report." 

Why they came up with the idea of throwing in a magic act with a health care debate in the first is, however, still unclear.
