Justin was transformed into a wizard, a wolf, and even had massive googly eyes on his face at one point.
Justin is actually an Emmy award-winning journalist, making it that much funnier.
“Wait, Misty, did I have a weird face?” you can hear him asking a colleague off-camera. After a pause you hear, “Oh, there are special effects on the phone.”
The video quickly went viral on Facebook, amassing nearly 16,000 views, 2500 reactions, and 200 comments.
The video’s caption reads, “When you’re trying to do a serious Facebook Live about the weather and you accidentally tap the Mystery Mask filter. Poor Justin Hinton.”
“I think every on-scene weather report should use this filter,” wrote one user. “They’d reel in the viewers for sure.”
“Loved the ‘Weather Wizard’. Good job Justin Hinton,” commented another.
Justin had a great laugh about it too. “If you can’t laugh at yourself, what’s the point of laughter?” he wrote in an explanation on Facebook. “It still makes me laugh.”
