MADISON COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — A North Carolina reporter gave online viewers a hilarious weather report last week.

Justin Hinton, of WLOS, was on Facebook Live in Madison County last Thursday as a part of his station’s weather coverage.

He says he accidentally activated a filter generator.

Zany filters started popping up while he did his report.

Hinton had no idea what was happening until he stepped off camera.

The clip is going viral — he’s even been featured nationally on the Today Show.

Hinton says he’s just happy he was able to give other people a smile and a laugh.
