A man who ridiculously claims he is a time traveller from the year 2582 has predicted Earth will face a blackout lasting three days within the next decade. In a bonkers TikTok video, the man bizarrely claims the planet will be plunged into 72 hours of darkness and he urges people to start preparing for the phenomenon.

His video which claims a three-day blackout will cause chaos on Earth in five years’ time has been watched by more than 425,000 users, the Daily Star Online reports.

Can we use TVs and phones?” And a third wrote: “It’s not real, he has had multiple videos saying stuff would happen then they never did and he deleted the videos.” There is a growing list of social media accounts run by hoaxers who claim to be from the future while throwing out predictions of doom and gloom.
