Top definition
When a reality television show or competition intentionally re-edits footage for a pre-commercial tease that is not really what occurs when the show returns from break.

Often used to maintain viewer interest or tension through the commercial break.
"America's Got Talent implemented a sly use of Fast Fauxward tonight, as its "coming up" package showed clips of the judges coming down hard on a young girl about to cry... but after the break, the judges actually put her through to the next round with nothing negative to say."
