It's Inauguration Day, and it's pretty safe to say that things are a little tense out there. Luckily, the BBC inadvertently offered some levity when it accidentally aired the wrong closed captions during its broadcast of Trump's inauguration.

The mix-up was brought to the internet's attention by Kayleigh Smirk, a 25-year-old from Southampton in the UK, who was watching the broadcast on mute with captions.

I have to say, these closed captions make the inauguration infinitely more hilarious. Let's take a closer look.

Buzzfeed has confirmed that instead of coming from the inauguration, the closed captions were actually dialogue from the CBBC show The Dumping Ground.

Kayleigh's tweet quickly went viral. So far it has over 7,800 likes and has been retweeted over 6,700 times. She told Buzzfeed she was "gobsmacked" that it spread as quickly as it did.

"The reaction has been insane, my notifications have pretty much melted at this point," she said. "But I’m really glad it seems to have cheered people up regardless!"

At least she has a new claim to fame now.
