The videos appeared to vary in content matter but who knows what you would see if you were to actually watch them.

One video claimed to be about a foal wanting attention, while a different one spoke about giving a woman a makeover.

Another apparently gave out cooking tips, definitely something new for the rugby team.

So, there was also this video that mentioned something about a boy filming his mother and the look of shock on her face after she watches it.

The videos seemed to be posted at the same time each morning and it carried on for a couple of days before they were taken down and the account holders notified their followers of the hack.

By then it was a bit late, their followers had already gathered that their latest posts were caused by a hacker and not a new ploy of gaining interaction with fans.
