Upon laying eyes on the snapshot, some questions we had were: what happened after this photo was taken; what was the spillage like; did he have napkins; and would the country of Mexico press charges.
Turns out it was all for naught. We along with every other media outlet were pranked by Yes Theory, a YouTube group. The group uploaded a video to their channel on Sunday explaining just how they were able to fool the internet and major news network, with a J-Biebs look-alike! Check out the awesome clip outlining their epic prank below:
We'll admit it. They had us fooled.
