CERN Scientists Under Investigation After Fake Human Sacrifice

CERN is primarily known for its Large Hadron Collider, which discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. But recently, a video has been circulating that paints the facility in a more ominous light.

The video appears to show some kind of occult ritual being performed on CERN's campus that culminates in a human sacrifice. The video was filmed from the point-of-view of an observer watching the ritual from a second- or third-story window, who then flees while cursing profusely.

A CERN spokesperson has told Agence France-Presse that the video is only a prank and that nobody actually died.

Still, she says, "These scenes were filmed on our premises without official permission or knowledge" and "CERN does not condone this type of spoof." An investigation is underway.

The spokesperson confirmed that the only people capable of gaining access to CERN facilities are people with security clearance, which means the pranksters must be CERN employees or visiting scientists. The CERN spokesperson did not comment on possible suspects.

To be fair to the occultists though, they were probably only working for the greater good of CERN.
