Karim Akhtar and Solomon Laurent were walking home from a night out on Friday when they noticed a purple hue lighting up the Norfolk sky. The duo, both 22, immediately whipped out their cameras and began filming a TikTok video as they laughed in amazement and couldn't believe their luck. But just seconds later, they were left dissapointed after realising the display was a result of a lit-up Premier Inn sign glowing from one of the chain’s Norwich hotels.

The video, which has since surpassed 6 million views and garnered over 800,000 likes, captured the men in hysterics after making the discovery. It served as an extra blow to the pair, who travelled to Iceland in January in hopes to see the best of the Northern Lights, but failed because the weather was too cloudy.
