Happy NSW Freedom Day to all who celebrate and welcome to Dom Perrottetvision for the future. It’s been 114 days of intense locky d that can really encrypt the little brain eggs, which clearly happened to the folks behind The Daily Telegraph socials today.
To celebrate Freedom Day, which finally came to us, The Daily Telegraph decided to post a picture of the Aussie cast of The wedding singer musical hitting Sydney on 16 October.
“WE DID IT, NSW!” It wrote the Daily Telegraph.
“After 114 days of hard lockdown and months of sacrifice and uncertainty, Freedom Day is finally here – which means it’s time to party! What are your plans?”
The accompanying image is a beautiful image, an amazing image even as it has two people on a lush, green lawn near the city looking all happy and ready to take on the world. The perfect post-lockdown piccy.
The only problem is, the city behind them is Melbourne, not Sydney.
When someone in journalism makes a mistake, of course, there are legions of commentators who are ready to correct the hell out of them. Really everyone is competing to be the funniest removal and there was a part.
“Lmfao, this is Melbourne Bridge,” wrote one Instagram user.
“It’s Melbourne, guys,” wrote another.
Folks, maybe next time you should just post a picture of the Sydney Harbor Bridge and call it a day? It would definitely save you from all this embarrassment.
The picture has since been deleted, where the social media manager / young intern at The Daily Telegraph is probably feeling a quick embarrassment right now.
Instead of the deleted post, DT posted some infographics on what you can and cannot do on this blessed day of freedom, but you can even see it on their page if you wish.
I expect a more colorful replacement post with a nice little landmark in Sydney soon, but until then I giggle over this NSW-themed post with a very melancholy image.
If you would like to read about everything we can and cannot do on Freedom Day, we have a post about it very soon.
