People think Canada bought the moon but here's what's really going on

What on earth is going on when people think Canada just bought the moon?

It's a question many were asking after #CanadaBuysMoon began trending on social media Wednesday night.

For a moment there, some people thought it alluded to Canada's pandemic expenditure.

Given that news of the country's acquired debt was reported yesterday, this is a reasonable assumption.

A separate Twitter trend attacking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also gave it some political sentiment.

But, in fact, it was the result of K-pop band BTS' loyal fans supporting their newest hit, Moon.

The song has already shot to #1 on the iTunes music charts thanks to Canadian members of the BTS Army.

Keep up the good work, BTS fans!
