Local TV Station Calls PyeongChang 'P.F. Chang' in Very Bad, Very Viral "Graphics Mix-Up"

An ABC affiliate Chicago TV station has apologized after confusing "PyeongChang" for "P.F. Chang's" in a Saturday morning Olympic broadcast, Sports Illustrated reports. WLS 7 aired the name of the popular Asian chain with the Olympic rings throughout the segment.

A spokesperson for the station told the Chicago Tribune the incident was a graphics "mix-up," and that the P.F. Chang's graphic was for an earlier “satirical piece” on the Friday night program. Per the station, it was mistakenly used again during the Saturday show.

The error quickly went viral:

P.F Chang's jumped in as well, noting they're not, in fact, hosting the most prestigious athletic competition in the world.

There's always next Games.
