If you were among the countless people stunned by early reports of the horrifying terrorist attacks in Paris last Friday, you probably watched the widely shared Vine capturing an explosion heard during the France versus Germany game at the Stade de France. Along with breaking news reports, the haunting video has appeared in subsequent coverage of the attacks, and as of Tuesday afternoon has been looped -- or played -- more than 150 million times.
Now, Vine has confirmed that the post has become the most-looped Vine of all time, according to a report by BuzzFeed News.
At first glance, it may seem like the Vine was taken from someone who witnessed the attack at the stadium, but it was actually created by Terje Haavin, a 22-year-old from Tromsø, Norway, who recorded video of the game on his computer. Haavin typically records the games and posts highlights on social media, and it didn't take long before he made the connection between the mysterious explosion sound heard in the video and the first reports of the attacks, according to the report.
