In 2013, some Americans were tricked into believing that Armageddon was much closer than it was by an unidentified prankster who found a way to hack into a Montana TV station's emergency broadcast system.
Once they got into the system, they detailed the rise in the undead and to not engage them.
Despite the initial worry, the prankster was fortunately apprehended.

Voice interruption of Queen Elizabeth's funeral
ITV was sharing live footage of the Queen's hearse on its way to West London like many outlets were doing.
But in a split moment, an unidentified, whispering female voice interrupted."The death is irreversible… The fact that she's trapped," the ghostly voice can be heard in the unverified clip of the coverage.
The male commentator paused briefly before continuing to narrate the hearse's journey, not acknowledging the eerie chatter.
Although some people on social media thought the voice was the late Princess Diana, the logical answer is that it is a crew member whispering something in the background, unaware that her microphone was on.
She was also probably talking about how much of a tragedy it is that the late monarch passed away and said that her death is, unfortunately, "irreversible".The audio evidently has been taken out of context, and it seems that the woman said "travelling" and not "trapped."

Jamaican paranormal attack
In 2010, a news crew in Jamaica was investigating an alleged ghost attack on a young boy. He claimed that the "duppy," which is the Jamaican word for ghost, was bugging him. He also said that it was a deceased friend who started haunting him.
The crew was shocked as it seemed that the boy was dragged around as onlookers tried to intervene and help.
In 2005, Ramon Watkins, the Las Vegas native who calls himself Yahweh, was being interviewed about how he learned to call upon the UFOs from the Old Testament. And as the broadcast was meant to essentially prove that he was a fraud, an ABC News reporter was confused after Watkins seemed to manifest orbs of orange light in the sky before disappearing.
In November 1977, the UK-based network's evening news was interrupted when the audio for the broadcast was replaced by a voice that claimed to represent the 'Ashtar Galactic Command."
The voice relayed a six-minute-long message instructing all of humanity to abandon its weapons to participate in a 'future awakening" for a "higher state of evolution.'
After the six minutes, the broadcast went back to the scheduled programming.
Investigations that proceeded after showed that the Hannington transmitter of the Independent Broadcasting Authority had rebroadcast the signal from a small but closeby unauthorised transmitter instead of the intended source at the Rowridge transmitting station.
The hoaxer was never discovered.
