A woman’s property owner thinks house is on fire due to TV show in viral video

Turning a crackling fire on your TV screen to make your room festive can cause confusion, as a woman on TikTok recently discovered.

In the video, posted to the app by an account called Awandance, you can see a close-up of a TV showing footage of a fireplace.

Text overlays the clip, as follows: “The owner just sent us a video saying oh my god [oh my god] The heater on your TV makes it look as if the building is on fire.”

Then the camera cuts to a shot from the street, where it actually looks like there’s a fire burning in the second floor room.

This quiz is superimposed: “This is what you sent us” accompanied by a laughing face emoji.

The hilarious snapshot, shared on December 8, was captioned: “I’ve been laughing so hard for a really long time about #fy#Christmas.”

Awandance went on to explain in the comments section, “For everyone who asks about their landlord: She’s literally the best! Her work is behind our apartment, which is why she saw. Not scary, I promise.”

The clip, which can be viewed here, has gained a lot of attention on TikTok since it was shared, and has garnered more than two million views and nearly 250,000 likes at the time of writing.

Many people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the funny story.

One TikTok user, Thegenevievedavis, wrote: “This is the video that gave me that laugh I needed so this is, bye, thank you,” along with a series of smiley face emojis.

Another shouted, Ari, “I wish I was a fly on the wall when they first looked and saw it.”

Chriselli revealed, “At first I was like, ‘Make your own business, owner! “

Alyssa Manley explained, “This happened to me too! I had my boss out for dinner and she left her kids in the car to run and save us because she thought there was a fire.”

Sarabeth T stated, “I just felt like it couldn’t be that bad and then I couldn’t stop laughing oh my gosh.”

DrinkingSunlight posted a star emoji, adding: It’s starting to look a lot like *arson*.

“I’m surprised that at least 10 people haven’t contacted the fire department yet,” Roneta commented.

Becca McCarrick noted, “No, I’d call the fire department 1,000% if I was driving with this.”

For this, the video poster explained: “Lol [laugh out loud]! Luckily our living room window faces away from the street!! “
