Social media users were left puzzled recently by a news clip showing a boy who seems to appear from nowhere.
The peculiar clip, which features a woman who is being interviewed about efforts to remove British Prime Minister Theresa May from power, seems normal enough at a glance, but if you look closer at the background on the left-hand side a young boy can be seen suddenly popping in to view.

The so-called 'teleporting boy' quickly went viral on Twitter, prompting numerous comments from social media users who made various tongue-in-cheek references to science-fiction shows and movies.

As it turns out however, the anomaly is down to little more than an editing error. It seems that someone at the BBC had taken a shortcut when putting together the end of the piece.
"Morph transition, it would have been done as the interviewee may have carried on talking so they needed a clip where she wasn't," said one user. "Pretty standard."

The clip in question can be viewed below.

Not surprising really. Anyone who thought it was actually teleportation, should really take a good long think about gullibility. :)

It's a pretty cool effect to see on an ordinary news clip, though.

People think news clips aren't edited?     WOW, we face such a DIRE problem with intellectualism these days!

People who don't do photography, video editing, production, etc. professionally or as a hobby often have no clue how any of it really works. This is true for most things. I don't know anything about being a lawyer...Never needed one, and never even known one, much less studied law itself.
