An anchorman unknowingly did a weather report with Facebook filters continually changing his appearance in amusing ways.

Justin Hinton from WLOS in Asheville, North Carolina didn't realize the "Facebook Mystery Mask" feature was on when he did a live report on Facebook about snow in the area.

So at various times he sported everything from a space helmet, to googly eyes, to a wizard's beard.
