On 22nd November, 1987, an unidentified man came on to two channels in Chicago, USA. He was wearing a Max Headroom mask, this is a character that was created by George Stone as a fictional British AI.

The then independent station WGN-TV was interrupted first, and then the PBS channel WTTW which is where the man was uttering strange remarks and dropped his pants, he was then spanked by a fly swatter before the screen went blank.

To this day no one has put their hands up to the prank or about any motives behind it, if indeed there was one.

I’ve put the video link below of the interruption. It’s a little quirky for sure!
