A Weather Channel reporter looked to have played up the drama and severity of Hurricane Florence in a hilarious video that has been circulating on Twitter

In the clip, Seidel appears to brace his feet deeper into the grass so that he won’t go with the wind.

But as he does so, two men stroll not to far behind him and make it look as if the weather isn’t truly that bad. 

‘So dramatic! Dude from the weather channel bracing for his life, as 2 dudes just stroll past. #HurricaneFlorence,’ one user said in a tweet that has now been liked more than 256,000 times.

Others shared the video, along with other examples from the past of news broadcasters appearing to fabricate the severity of the situations that they were in. 

The Weather Channel released a statement after the video went viral, claiming that ‘exhaustion’ and difference in surface contributed to the distinction.

‘It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1:00 a.m. ET this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted,’ they said in a statement to the Huffington Post

But somewhat unbeknownst to them, there is another clip of the same segment showing those same two people walking on grass. 

One of the men even pauses, stands in place for several seconds and appears to be on his phone – but does not blow over.
