Glee has been exposed for using dummies instead of extras, and how have we not noticed this before?
Over the course of the series, the cast performs a number of stellar hits to a packed auditorium, which we innocently thought was filled up with actual people.
However, TikTok user Kelly Sipos recently went viral when she spotted a number of faux humans in the audience.
‘So I’m just noticing in Glee, there are dummies in the crowd,’ she said when rewatching season four episode eight, titled Homecoming.
She then laughed that it felt like the House of Wax, seeing the video with the caption ‘THIS NEEDS TO BE SEEN. IM TERRIFIED. RYAN MURPHY EXPLAIN’ rack up a whopping 517, 800 views in just one week.
After being shared onto Twitter, thousands flocked to the comments where they were left in stitches at the discovery.
‘Omfg… just when you think you’ve seen all the horrors the world has to show….’ one wrote while another said: ‘Can’t believe they used dummies when I, a 16 year old Live Dummy, would have done this for free.’
Someone else added: ‘My whole childhood ruined, never notice those poor dummies.’
While others were left completely creeped out: ‘This is actually really unsettling.’
Glee recently fell under fire after the star of the show, Lea Michele, was called out for her treatment of fellow castmates.
Samantha Ware spoke out and accused the Rachel Berry star of making her life a ‘living hell’ when they filmed together during season four of the TV musical.
The 33-year-old has since issued an apology for how her behaviour was ‘perceived’ by her co-stars.
Matthew Morrison who played Mr Schuester, has now spoken out about the accusations, where he told FUBAR Radio’s Access All Areas: ‘I honestly think it’s a distraction of the bigger issues that are going on right now. It’s kind of like, ah.’
He pressed: ‘You want to be a good, pleasant person to be around. That’s about all I’m going to say on that.’
Glee is available to stream on Netflix.
