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.

Fair play to Nic Aoidh. She really went for it.
