Metal Gear Solid V Picture Accidently Used by a News Station

An official screenshot from Metal Gear Solid V was accidentally used by Russia Today when discussing child soldiers in Africa.

A news program brought on hip-hop artist Emmanuel Jal to talk about the issues he faced growing up as a young child. Then out of the blue, in comes the Metal Gear Solid V screenshot on a station HD screen.

For what it’s worth, image searching for “child soldier” doesn’t seem to come up with any Metal Gear Solid V screen shots, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if someone in the news room is a big fan of the franchise and tried to pull a fast one. Not today, my friend though; the internet is on to you.

At least it’s not as bad as this mix-up:
