No 2. Triple Waterspouts
This one began with a photo going around in emails in 2002 which showed a trio of menacing water spouts approaching a container ship as Hurricane Lili neared. But the National Weather Service of the US quickly debunked the photo and revealed it as a photoshopped piece of work. What really struck the meteorologist was three large spouts so near to each other.
No 1. The Blair Witch Project
This movie which came out in 1999 wasn’t so obvious to a lot of people in that it was fiction. Perhaps fueling the belief of it being real was a network of background web sites about the movie’s mythology created by the movie makers. The movie was taken to be an actual footage of kids disappearing in the woods by many.
