A long and fancy retelling of this tale has appeared on the BBC:Band goes on tour, band members begin to wonder why there is nobody there when they are playing, venue operators wonder where all the people they supposedly sold tickets to are, then they realise the band leader has been buying attention online to make it look as if the band has an audience, when it doesn't:

A social media prankster appeared in an Australian court on Wednesday charged in relation to driving a car full of water to a liquor store during a heat wave and buying beer.
Michael Alexander Philippou, 28, who operates the RackaRacka YouTube channel with his twin brother Danny, faced the Christies Beach Magistrates Court in Adelaide on charges including driving in a reckless or dangerous manner, driving an unregistered vehicle and failing to wear a seat belt.
He posted video online of him and his companion Jackson O’Doherty wearing goggles and a scuba diving regulators while driving the modified Ford Laser sedan in January last year.

The video shows them drinking the beer underwater.
Another video posted in December showed police arresting Philippou over the stunt. ...

"Okay so NASA said today was the only day a broom can stand up on its own because of the gravitational pull," Twitter user @mikaiylaaaaa wrote, accompanying a video of herself balancing a broom.
The tweet, which has received over 250,000 likes at the time of this post, inspired thousands to upload their own videos of broom balancing acts.
The stunt's premise of an unusual gravitational pull on February 10, however, is false - and NASA wants to set the record straight.
"This is another social media hoax that exemplifies how quickly pseudoscience and false claims can go viral," NASA said in a statement emailed to Insider. ...
