A Pakistani politician has been ridiculed online after praising the ‘pilot’ of a video game.
A Pakistan politician has been mocked online for confusing Grand Theft Auto footage with real life.
Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, secretary general for Pakistan Awami Tehreek, uploaded a video online of an aircraft narrowly missing an oil tanker parked on a runway.
Gandapur, however, mistook the short computer game clip for real life.
Gandapur captioned his tweet: “Narrow escape of an aircraft which could have ended in a great disaster. Miraculous save by the pilot’s presence of mind.”
The ex-cricketer was alerted to his mistake after his tweet gained thousands of comments mocking the error.
Gandapur is not the only Pakistani politician to make a tech gaffe this year.
Earlier this year, Shaukat Yousafzai’s team live-streamed an entire press conference with a ‘cat filter’ enabled.
