The day Mr Bean dies is the day I’ll take a baseball bat to my childhood and my old VHS.
Luckily, that day hasn’t come yet, contrary to what the internet wants me to believe.
Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson has become the subject of many a death hoax, but this latest one takes the cake.
It’s really an online scam, and it’s been doing the social media rounds since Wednesday.
The headline reads: “FOX BREAKING NEWS: ‘Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson)’ died at 62 After Crashing his Car on Attempt perfecting a Stunt – Today July, 2017”.
If you see this on your timeline, don’t bother clicking on the video link or shedding your tears.
Instead, News18 informs, avoid clicking on it at all costs:
According to reports, clicking on the latest fake Fox News article would lead users to an error page claiming the computer is in lockdown. The user will be told to contact a ‘support number’ to unlock the system again.
This support number is a fake number to extract personal details such as credit card information, bank account details and more.
Cheeky buggers. Slightly more creative than the Absa logo scam, but a real dick move.
Great – now that you’re all clued up, I’m gonna cheer myself up by binge-watching Mr Bean and Blackadder.
