The phenomenon is scientifically explained in this article:

The story doesn’t seem to explain where she was, so I thought I’d add a little clarification. The photographer was shooting at Nanoose Bay, which is on Vancouver Island. The image she caught was of the top of Cheam Peak, which is not only across the Strait of Georgia, but far to the other side of the city of Vancouver on the mainland. In other words, way beyond the horizon.

Yes, the video didn't, which is why, besides providing a scientific explanation since I couldn't make out what that screeching explanation on the video was, I added the article I linked to in my comment just above yours:  Here are the first two paragraphs of that article.  The bolding is by me.

"Simone Engels had cast her eyes across the waters of the Strait of Georgia from a beach on Vancouver Island when she caught a glimpse of something bright and shiny on the horizon.
She'd come to Moorecroft Regional Park in Nanoose Bay, B.C., on Sunday to photograph the mountains on the mainland in the sunset of a beautifully clear winter day, but the object in the distance didn't look like any mountain she recognized."

Since it is an optical illusion/mirage it would appear and disappear when the conditions change, I'd like to see that happen. Imagine what people a thousand years ago would have thought when they saw things like this.

Would we call that a fake iceberg?

That would be a lot better than fake news about it.

It's too bad that the Titanic didn't hit a fake iceberg
