There’s a zebra on the loose in New York! Or at least that’s what Twitter wants you to believe. The image went viral after Buzzfeed retweeted it. But it’s a fake.

Mens Journal writer Shawn McCreesh has since admitted that it was just a joke. And actress Mary Lynn Rajskub made the same joke with a different photo today. So it’s probably safe to assume that this is for some kind of TV or movie.

It’s the one year anniversary of both The Dress™ and The Llamas™, which happily distracted Twitter for a day last year. But this is no The Llamas™. This is just a stuffed zebra.
