What most people on the internet did not realize that it was a clip from ABC's new comedy show, titled Content, starring Charlotte Nicdao, who plays Lucy. The show is designed to be watched on phone and it makes the actors look like actual people living normal lives in the era of social media like all of us. The clip that went viral shows the same character, Lucy who is singing and live streaming and the crash is part of the script. The episode premiered on September 4 on ABC's YouTube channel. Daley Pearson, the co-founder of the Content's production Ludo, promoted it on Reddit. He also posted the behind the scenes of how the fake car crash was rehearsed for the show.
As netizens mistook it for a real car crash, their reactions seem hilarious to the ones who knew it was a show and not real incident. One of the internet users really said it is astonishing for her why people are thinking that a live stream like that can be real. While others have tweeted things like, "Oh God" and "why was she live to stream?" as some of them also criticized her for using the phone while she was driving. Internet was flipping over the #FlipGirl and people also believe that it should be trending worldwide.
After the reality was finally made clear to the people, they appreciated the creativity and also admitted how much they loved the new show Content. Before all the storm, actor Charlotte Nicdao had absolutely no clue of the show making it huge just by a viral clip. Once more and more people started tweeting about it, Charlotte herself shared the video and announced that she's "viral".
