FOX accidentally uses Dallas Skyline in segment to show Houston LOL

Recommended Posts

Im watching FOX's pre SuperBowl coverage in Houston. They had an animated segment around 1pm that talked about the history of football in Houston. When discribing some game event they showed an obvious illustration of the Dallas skyline and showing "how Houston was devastated after they lost the game" and the skyline was torn in half. But it was the Dallas skyline. HAHA

 

Sorry I don't have a vid. For us architecture snobs this is a huge faux pas. People in the north think we are the same city. I KNOW Houston must be offended.:lol:

That's unfortunate. I'm used to seeing very dated aerials that may have been recorded 5 years ago on national TV games, but I've never seen them use another city skyline.

It was weird. The skyline had the reunion tower and everything. You could make out Fountain place etc..

I've seen a few tv shows use Dallas for Houston. There's even a stock photo of Downtown Manhattan with clearly the Freedom Tower U/C. Used it on our company mag and New Zealand air has it on their onboard screens. Mislabeling and ignorance can go hand in hand.

 

BTW no offense taken. Better to be mistaken for Dallas than Beaumont :P

Know what images I'll enjoy of Houston? From all the replays we'll see from an instant classic Super Bowl LI game, in addition to last years Nova' vs. Carolina buzzer-beater final.
