Pakistani Politician Mistook GTA 5 Video for Reality

Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, a Pakistani politician, praised on Twitter the skills of a plane pilot... from Grand Theft Auto V.

Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, Secretary-General of the Pakistani party Awami Tehreek, has recently improved the mood of many people. It all started with a video showing the landing of an airplane interrupted by a lorry entering the lane. The pilot pulls the machine up at the last minute and avoids the collision. This was seen by a politician and, in order to express his admiration for this achievement, he wrote a tweet, which you can now see only on screenshots. The Internet doesn't forget.

„Mało brakowało, a skończyłoby się to wielką tragedią. Cudowna interwencja uważnego pilota”.

Observers quickly explained to Gandaporou that the recording did not represent a real event, but only a fragment of Grand Theft Auto V, and the tweet disappeared. But the cat was out of the bag. The politician was followed by others:

In addition, the film was marked as potentially inappropriate because the situation was dramatic. There have even been speculations here and there as to whether or not this was an attempt at a terrorist attack. I think GTA 5 graphic designers deserve a bonus.

And if you think that the Pakistani government representative's mishap is an isolated case...
