A chaotic music festival in Scotland, 'T in the Park', wound up with a police search Monday after 23-year-old Scott Johnston tweeted that someone had zipped him up in a tent bag as a joke and he couldn't get out. He also said his phone battery was dying.

As his plea for help was shared thousands of times, police and festival security launched an urgent search amongst the sea of abandoned tents, no doubt fearing Scott was suffocating.

Scott has now revealed it was all just a hoax that got 'out of control', and police have confirmed he has contacted them to let them know he is safe and well.
