Unicorn Licking the Rainbow, originally uploaded by Lissie_Loo.

Some weirdos believe they have captured a photo of the mystical unicorn:

According to the UK Sun:

INCREDIBLE footage apparently shows a UNICORN prancing through woods.

A group of intrepid myth hunters supposedly spotted the magical beast — but there's more to this fairytale than meets the eye.

In an official statement, the Ontario Science Centre, in Toronto, Canada, claimed to have been sent the footage by a mamber of the public for analysis.

But they later admitted making it themselves to promote an upcoming exhibition on mythical creatures.

The statement said: "The Science Centre is reviewing the footage frame-by-frame to determine whether the claim is legitimate.

"With closer examination, we hope to establish whether or not a genuine unicorn sighting has occurred.

"In the meantime, the Science Centre is asking the public to use caution if they think they see a unicorn - do not make any sudden movements or attempt to use flash photography.

"Although legends of unicorns state they are peaceful creatures, scientists worry they may harm themselves or others if they end up on a road or highway."

During the elaborate ruse, the centre even went as far as to set up an emergency unicorn hotline for the public for further information on unicorns or to report any unusual or questionable sightings.

Centre spokesman Christine Crosbie said: "We've received calls from all kinds of people, predominantly women, and some confused news reporters, in response to the video.

"The reactions have been amazing — women wish it were true.

"Although some keen-eyed spectators have reported knowing the video was fake by the way the unicorn's tail moves and the fact it is not pure white.

"It's still alive in our culture even though we don't have any proof scientifically."

Here's the video, judge for yourself:
