A woman was left red-faced after thinking she had spotted a ‘ UFO ‘ – as when she showed the clip to her friends they pointed out that it was a streetlight.
TikTok star Maddi, @daddi_bling, shared the video that she had shown her friends, explaining that she was at a beer festival and may have had a bit too much to drink.
In the clip, they can be heard shouting with glee as fireworks are let off nearby, and as Maddi films she notices something circular floating in the sky.
She then focuses on the object and can be heard saying ‘woah, what is that’, but if you look closely you can tell that it is actually a streetlight.
Maddi shared the video on TikTok with the caption: “And then I told everyone I knew that I saw a UFO.”
And over the clip, she added the text: “Throwback to that one time I got so hammered at a beer festival that I mistook a street lamp for a UFO.”
Maddi’s clip has been viewed over three million times in just four days, and TikTok users have flocked to the post to support Maddi, saying they would have made the same assumption.
One said: “I’m sober and I thought it was a UFO.”
And then a second wrote: “Ok, but it does look like it’s just floating there.”
Then a third commented: “No because I would have mistaken it for a UFO completely sober.”
“That street lamp do be kinda sus though,” added a fourth user.
Other users said they had made similar mistakes in the past, as one added: “I’ve done this before. I looked out my car window, looked up and my heart sank for a solid 30 seconds.”
And a second wrote: “It’s ok. One time I thought the full moon was so beautiful and huge but it was just a Burger King sign.”
