    The scene featured in the viral video was taken from the 2002 American remake of 1998 Japanese horror film “The Ring”.

    The housefly that managed to cause quite a stir online by landing on Mike Pence's head during his vice presidential debates with Kamala Harris, apparently continues to serve as inspiration for humorous parodies on social media.

    A new video recently tweeted by Blumhouse Productions founder Jason Blume features what seems to be a slightly altered version of a scene from the 2002 American remake of 1998 Japanese horror film “The Ring”.

    Yet while in the original video, Naomi Watts' heroine manages to snatch a fly from the TV screen where a cursed videotape is being played, the vid tweeted by Blume features the insect being plucked from footage of the aforementioned debates.

    ​Having accrued about 3,9 thousand “likes” as of the time of this article's writing, the video has been praised by quite a few social media users, some of them even describing it as a "work of art".
