Danish news channel accidently uses image from Assassin's Creed

Boy, file this one away in the “O” file, right under “Oops”.

On February 26, Danish news channel TV2 was reporting on the conflict currently taking place in Syria, when it made a most erroneous blunder. During the report, an image of the country’s capital, Damascus, was shown. The problem: the image was of the city as depicted in the first Assassin’s Creed.

Times of Israel reports that the mistake occurred when an employee for the channel picked up the image online, believing it to be the real Damascus. You can see the goof in action via the video below, about 16 seconds in.

TV2’s chief Jacob Nybroe has since commented on this rather embarrassing mix-up, saying it served as a “reminder to us all of the importance of verifying the sources of pictures.”

Sadder still is the fact that this is not an isolated case. Just last year, the BBC mistook the logo of Halo’s United Nations Space Command for the UN’s actual logo in another report on Syria. And in the year prior, fellow UK-based network ITV snafued big time when they incorporated footage from the game ArmA 2 into a documentary about the Irish Republican Army.

If this keeps up, next year we’ll probably see someone accidently use footage from Call of Duty: Black Ops II in a report on state-of-the-art terrorist weaponry.
