Reporter Teresa Mannion warned all idiots to stay inside while Storm Desmond raged on in Ireland. She struggled to be heard against the rain and wind of the storm and quickly became an internet celebrity because of how passionate her report was.
So of course she got photoshopped.

Then, eventually, also remixed into a pop song.
There's even a petition to have the next big storm that comes to Ireland named Storm Teresa. It already has almost 900 signatures.
That's no way to answer a reporter's question.
A television reporter asking about a surfacing voter fraud scandal was met with open hostility by an Alabama city commissioner Oct. 6.
WTVY reporter Ken Curtis approached City Commissioner Amos Newsome of Dothan, Alabama to ask if he was planning to resign. Newsome, a Democrat, has been facing calls from fellow city commissioners to resign after three of his campaign workers were convicted of voter fraud. Newsome, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, has not been charged with fraud himself.
Newsome's response to Curtis's questions was, some face-shoving, some yelling, and then, finally, some hitting, hard enough that Curtis staggered backwards.
Curtis later posted a picture of himself on Twitter, showing the result of that slap/scratch.
Dotham police arrested Newsome and charged him with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.
In what is a sad view of the state of reality, BBC reporter Sarah Teale was instantly harassed on the street when she finished her introduction about street harassment.
The BBC followed up with the reporter after the incident:
The East Midlands Today reporter said she was "genuinely shocked" by what the man said.
She said: "It's not banter, it's not funny and no-one should have to put up with it."
The TV presenter said it was good people were now talking about the issue but said claims the video was staged were "absolute nonsense".
She said: "It's fairly obvious from my reaction that it wasn't staged.
"If it is a craze it doesn't make it any less offensive."
Attention to this subject has been on the rise the last year or so, especially after a video of a woman walking down the street alone, receiving multiple cat calls, went viral.
Comedian/activist Russell Brand was protesting on Downing Street this week with some east London residents who fear they might be evicted, when things got a little heated.
A US Investment firm called Westbrook Partners purchased their property earlier this year, and the company reportedly plans to refurbish the units and raise rent to nearly triple what it is now - effectively forcing the people out of their home.
A Channel 4 reporter asked Brand if he thought the super rich, like himself, were partially responsible by moving into the area and affecting the property market. According to the Daily Mail, he pays £5,000-a-month and lives less than a mile from the troubled estate.
Needless to say, Brand was not amused.
