A video claiming that the Nashville blast was caused by a missile and not a recreational RV has gone viral among the conspiracy theorists on social media. It is also being claimed that the target of the blast was AT&T / NSA hardened switching facility 'spy hub.' The video and images of skyline, moments before the blast, also highlight the purported 'incoming' missile trail.
The wild theory went berserk on social media and user lapped it up, despite there being no evidence to show that the downtown blast on Christmas morning was caused any missile.
Moments before the blast, an audio recording was played from the RV warning people to evacuate the area. The recording, which also played Petula Clark pop song 'Downtown,' also included a countdown to the blast.
