Pakistani Politician Praises Quick Thinking Of Pilot, Posts Clip Of GTA V

A Pakistani politician posted a clip on Twitter this week, praising a pilot for his quick thinking and reflexes. In the clip, we see the pilot narrowly avoiding disaster as the plane almost collided with a gas tanker truck. It’s a testament to the bravery and calm nerves of the pilot… or at least it would be if it were real. The internet was very quick to point out the politician’s mistake, namely that the clip was from Grand Theft Auto V.

The original tweet has since been deleted, but fortunately the internet caught a few pictures first. This is one of the issues of games becoming more and more photo-realistic… although I’m not sure that GTA V qualifies for that. Have you ever been fooled like this?
