The new scam is similar to earlier video scams like Chuck Norris death at 71 and where Bon Jovi was killed by spammers. Clicking on the URL leads users to a page which looks and feels like Facebook. However, users are asked to install an update before they play the video.
The update in question is a malware and will install rogue software on your computer, so you are better off NOT INSTALLING anything. On the other hand, you would be safer if you do not click on the link itself. In addition to downloading malware to your computer, this scam will also start posting spam messages on your Timeline and affect your friends as well.
