VANCOUVER — Oh, what a beautiful city Montreal is.

The CN Tower, the historic Distillery District, the Toronto Islands … wait a second.

How could anyone ever confuse Montreal with Toronto, you ask? Well, Scuderia Ferrari’s Twitter account did. The racing team’s account tweeted a video Tuesday in anticipation of the Canadian Grand Prix that takes place in Montreal over the weekend, but with one major oversight…

Oops. That establishing shot at the beginning of the video was very clearly Toronto. At least they got the longitude and latitude right.

Twitter users, as you’d expect, were quick to jump on the mistake.
