A call center agent, who was either on a break or waiting for her shift to start, and recording a dance on TikTok perhaps to pass the time accidentally recorded a helicopter returning the MOA Globe.
The iconic MOA Globe was earlier reported to have been stolen by thieves aboard a helicopter.
The story was made more believable when SM MOA management released an official statement on their FB page confirming the incident.
It wasn’t clear if the helicopter that returned it is the same one used allegedly by the thieves to cart the globe away.

Around 5:30 in the morning, the call center agent who was working near the place where the MOA Globe sits, decided to record a dance video on TikTok.
While going about her dance routine, she happened to look over her shoulder as the chopper was lowering down the globe.
She cried out in panic and immediately picked up her phone.
“OMG! Ano’ng nangyari?” she cried loudly before picking up her phone.
Later on, SM MOA management released a second statement saying that the globe has been returned to its rightful place.
It also revealed that the alleged heist was part of a promo stunt for the Netflix movie, ‘Red Notice.’
The Mall of Asia (MOA) globe is an iconic symbol of the shopping center located near the entrance of the sprawling complex. It is one of the most photographed man-made structures in the Philippines. Shoppers and tourists visiting the area would often snap photos of themselves with the MOA globe in the background.
Earlier in the day, a video of the moment that the iconic MOA globe was allegedly lifted off from its spot went viral. The video, which has been shared so many times on social media has gotten a surprised reaction from many netizens. In the video, one could see from the perspective of the camera that it was taken from one attached to a motorcycle. The video then showed that an object was in the sky, which they said was allegedly the MOA globe being lifted off the ground via a helicopter.
The alleged heist involving the SM MOA Globe elicited reactions not only from netizens but also celebrities. Angel Locsin, Alessanda De Rossi and K Brosas recently had posts about the Mall of Asia globe. The iconic globe became the talk of the town due to allegations that it was stolen on Saturday night. MOA even released a public notice stating that the mall is working with the authorities. As of this posting, reports say that the giant globe is back on its spot.
