Take off, Eh?
Via Metro News:
Vancouver has found itself unwittingly thrust into the U.S. presidential race after a new campaign ad for Republican candidate Marco Rubio mistakenly featured footage of the Canadian city’s downtown skyline.
The ad, which was released over the weekend, opens with scenic sunrise shot of a tugboat with a city in the background as a narrator says “it’s morning again in America”— a reference to Ronald Reagan’s 1984 campaign slogan that used the same line.
The only problem? The city in the background isn’t America.
It’s unmistakably Vancouver’s iconic skyline, seen across the Burrard Inlet.
The city’s Harbour Centre is clearly visible in the shot, as are the cranes at Port Metro Vancouver. A small Canadian flag can even be seen flying on the back of the tugboat.
