The Twitterverse was lighting up, literally, with reports that former New Orleans Saints quarterback turned commentator Drew Brees had been struck by lightning while shooting a commercial for the online sports betting firm PointsBet.

The incident took place in Catatumbo along Lake Maracaibo in a video that went viral on Friday morning. 

A video on Twitter shows Brees in front of a camera preparing to shoot before a flash of light hits and the camera appears to fall on the ground.

It appears to have been staged however.

This story is developing.
