Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi's Despacito and YouTube's most viewed video has been deleted by a group of hackers. At least, for the time being.

The track that has earned 6 Guinness World Records, crossing the 5 billion mark only a few days ago, has mysteriously disappeared from the video-sharing website.

A quick search for the song on the website gives users a photo of masked figures aiming guns at the camera taken from the show La Casa de Papel.
