Halo Logo Mistaken for U.N Security Council

"During a report last week on the conflict in Syria, BBC News accidentally used the logo for the 'United Nations Space Command' -- the agency tasked with protecting Earth from hostile forces in the Halo video game franchise -- to represent the significantly less fictional United Nations Security Council. Whoops!" - Yahoo (Culture, Industry, Xbox, Xbox 360)

microsoft paid the video editor to do that make sure people remember halo 4 coming in a few months.

No this is BBC failing as always by just using Google Image search and grabbing the first one available. Blunders like this have happened many times before.

@Waddy101 I agree they probably just googled the acronym and printed the 1st one that came up. That is funny Funny cuz it's real.

Yeah they also claimed Arma 2 footage was actually footage of the IRA attacking English soldiers.

@RedDead
Nah that was ITV not the BBC.

Anyone that likes Halo knows #4 is coming and anyone that doesn't like Halo probably wouldn't recognise the logo.

1. Go to google images

2. Type "UNSC" in the search bar

3. Hit enter

4. Use the first image you see with the letters "UNSC"

You have just done the same research as the BBC.

They would have to pay a pretty good bit to get someone to do something that will make them look this retarded.

Why would Microsoft waist money paying them to put that picture up there? They could have just used that money and start some weird website and have people go over there.

The correct word for that sentence is "waste". "Waist" is a part of your body below your ribs and above your butt.

XD I'm sorry. You're right. I was watching a Dragon's Dogma video and wrote that comment fast.
