    Default Someone Put an Assassin’s Creed Screengrab In a TV Report on Syria



    Ah, the dangers of Google image search. On Feb. 26, Denmark's TV2 needed an over-the-shoulder shot for a report on the conflict in Syria, and some production assistant gave the control room a screengrab from the original Assassin's Creed (which features the city prominently) Apparently it's this one, from the game's unofficial wiki site. That's supposed to be the city's skyline as it appeared about 720 years ago, by the way.

    This isn't the first time TV has mixed up video game images for real life when reporting on problems in Syria. Back in May, the BBC used the insignia of Halo's United Nations Space Command, which is fictitious, to illustrate the United Nations Security Council's position on fighting in the troubled Middle Eastern state.

    The channel's head of news, Jacob Nybroe, called the mix-up a "reminder to us all of the importance of verifying the sources of pictures."

    That's hilarious. I think that it was put there deliberately just to get a laugh! Well, I just laughed. So, well done production assistant, well done.
