With the exception of reality television, it appears that today's small screen is becoming all the more authentic, and thus, relatable. Because of the shows featuring intense story lines and characters that we connect with it's no wonder we feel so heavily for the screen.

The above video -- featuring a news team baffled over a plane crash that left a roadway smashed (yet still with no ambulance in sight) -- demonstrates just how real TV can get, because while the anchors believed to be relaying a breaking news story, the truth was that it was all for show... a television show.

A word to the producers: if you're going to shut down a highway, you might want to alert the media.
