The video report was made to look like a report from the British Broadcasting Corporation. The video was widely circulated on the internet but had no connection to BBC. The video starts with a ‘RIP Natalia Bryant’ edit and later cut to a news anchor who spoke about fans still being in shock. The news anchor is cut mid-sentence as the video goes back to Natalia Bryant's photo. Vanessa Bryant’s hoax video was also made in a similar fashion.
