Beyonce didn't cause the Super Bowl blackout -- it was all because of "Lost."

Damon Lindelof, former "Lost" showrunner and executive producer, took to Twitter to share his (fake) theory about what caused the black out at Super Bowl 47.

If only it were true ...

“Immediately after the power failure in the Superdome, we lost numerous cameras and some audio powered by sources in the Superdome," Jennifer Sabatelle, vice president of communications at CBS Sports said in a statement released on February 3. "We utilized CBS’s back-up power and at no time did we leave the air. During the interruption, CBS Sports’ Steve Tasker, Solomon Wilcots and our studio team reported on the situation as a breaking news story, providing updates and reports while full power was being restored to the dome including our sets and broadcast booth. All commercial commitments during the broadcast are being honored."
