FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral video and found the claim to be misleading.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, we found a YouTube video titled: Witch caught on Camera | Vfx breakdown Cinema 4d and after effects, dated August 27, 2022, on Joseph Njovu visuals. The initial keyframes of the YouTube video match exactly with the viral clip and the description of the video informs that it has been manipulated and VFX has been added to the video to portray the witch floating on the truck.

The Joseph Njovu channel is about VFX tutorials to the audience and the creator teaches various VFX breakdowns, from beginner to advance, through videos. 

We also came across a longer 19-minute video on Joseph’s channel, where he demonstrates the exact working and adding of the witch VFX in the video. The video titled: VFX tutorial | flying witch caught on camera Cinema 4d and after effects, published on September 24, 2022, gives a step-by-step tutorial for creating the video. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral image is misleading.
