NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana —  What overshadows Alabama’s loss to Ohio State?

These six seconds of video from Thursday’s Sugar Bowl that have now been watched on VINE nearly eight million times, and that has 815 comments, by Friday morning.

And there isn’t even a single frame of gameplay in the video.

It’s what the clip captures but can’t be explained that has the  collective internet dying to know the backstory.  The comment avalanche on Reddit, full of speculation and theory, is not to be missed either. Who knows, maybe it’s just a Jimmy Kimmel prank.

Here it is, the clip titled, “When you’re at the game with your side dude and realize you’re on TV.”

But, thanks to the precocious wiles of technology users, one VINE shows the event in reverse. And events certainly look different when seen that way.

But to clear the air, since all these sites keep going with an assumption based on a VINE title, we looked into it. From what we know based on tweets of friends and family, that is Kaleigh’s boyfriend, and they’ve been dating for months. We’re waiting to hear back from her, but have reached out.
