JOHANNESBURG – If you were caught up in the UFO excitement this morning, here’s what really happened.
The smouldering UFO and crew of crime scene investigators didn’t form part of a movie. Instead, it was staged as part of an advert campaign.
Traffic came to a standstill on the corners of Sandton and William Nicol drives during peak hour traffic, as motorists and pedestrians slowed down to gawk at what appeared to be the scene of a crime or an accident.
The smouldering wreckage also created a frenzy on social media, leaving many sceptical of the authorities’ claims that it was merely the scene of a film shoot.
It’s since been confirmed that it was part of a local drink’s company’s brand activation.
