TG4 went above and beyond to outdo every other broadcaster when it came to Halloween pranks this year.
Broadcaster Caitlín Nic Aoidh was concluding her regular weather report when a bolt of lightning appeared out of nowhere and she disappeared in a cloud of smoke.

There was an eerie silence before TG4 cut the transmission. After recovering from the initial shock, most viewers realised it was a seasonal prank and took to Twitter to praise the Irish language broadcaster.
TG4 just produced the greatest weather report of all time. https://t.co/El6MiOCJdK
