NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Everyone has watched it. Some claim it’s a fake. Most don’t care, because it’s just that funny.

If you’re on the Internet, reading this post, chances are you’ve seen this Vine video of a young fan at a Miami Marlins game going absolutely bonkers after spotting himself on the big screen:

Leading the #Vineghazi charge is Josh Gold-Smith of theScore.com and Awful Announcing. He tweeted some quotes from a source at MLB Advanced Media who said there’s no way they would have struck out on that big, fat meatball of viral goodness.

But the originator of the Vine, Rayven Tirado of the Sporting News, insists it’s the real deal. And she had some choice words for those who think otherwise.

In the meantime, let’s just enjoy the moment. It could be fake, but it’s still spectacular.
