What was happening there?

ARD broadcast the first projections for the federal election on Friday.

But the case was quickly resolved.

Berlin - Well, is it Sunday already?

This is what some viewers of the ARD program “Asked - Hunted” thought.

Because for a few seconds on Friday an extrapolation for the federal election in 2021 suddenly appeared. There was confusion on Twitter, especially because the percentages were already being faded in - which, of course, nobody knows yet.

In the quiz show “Asked - Hunted”, a team of four competes against a so-called “hunter”.

This person has it all, as they are proven quiz professionals from the German national quiz team.

The spectators watch with suspense who is winning the race.

But this time something was different.

Because the display of the extrapolation for the federal election, which appeared for a few seconds at the bottom of the screen, irritated some.

But the shock only lasted for a short time.

Because the transmitter stepped in.

The Twitter account “asked - hunted” explained: “The display of the extrapolation was a test of the colleagues for Sunday.

Unfortunately it went live for a short time.

It was just a test of technology. ”Mystery solved.

Even if one person commented: "That is what time travelers would say now".

The display of the extrapolation was a test of the colleagues for Sunday.

Unfortunately it went live for a short time.

It was just a test of technique.
