Kids these days

hmph.

Dramatic video of a fireball at the bottom of an impact crater on farmland outside the town of Mazsalaca was shown all over the world, taken by a group of film students who said that they had heard the meteor strike.

But experts who examined the scene were less star-struck. Dr Ilgonis Vilks, chairman of the scientific council at the University of Latvia’s Institute of Astronomy, said: “It’s a fake. It’s very disappointing, I was full of hope coming here, but I am certain it is not a meteorite.”

Gotta say that beats the poop out of any prank I've ever done....
