Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar investigated the circulated video and found the claim to be misleading. The video is from an artistic live installation and did not take place recently. 

“Les Moutons” Artistic Performances 

Misbar’s team was not able to find the origins of the viral video via reverse image searches.  However, an advanced Google search with keywords pertaining to the video such as “Moutons,” sheep in French, and “sheep costumes” enabled Misbar’s team to trace the video back to an art troop called “Corpus.”
