T.I.T.V (the TV channel responsible for bringing you "I'm A Celebrity I Like Cheese") has been forced to release an apology after German Sheppard Watchdogs discovered they had being using computer game graphics instead of real life footage to promote their stories.

The con was first picked up by Mr H.Alo from Raccoon City. "I couldn't believe it I was watching a TITV reporter talking about the current plight of the Afghanirqais and there it was. They had spliced in 2 minutes of footage from Crash Bandicoot!"

The deception happened while a TITV reporter explained a new form of weapon designed to take down helicopters. Viewers were treated to footage of Crash Bandicoot spinning through the air but the reporter attempted to pass this computer generated sprite off as an actual trained spinning fox which could pose a serious threat to NATO forces in the area.

A TITV said "Yeah, we spliced in some computer game footage to sex up the news, so what? We just assumed our viewers would be so stupid they wouldn't realize."

Since "Crashgate" there have been further suspect newscasts identified, all released by TITV. Below are reported cases but if you are aware of any more please don't hesitate to ring our hotline.

1. The 2010-11 Champions league final between Manchester United and Barcelona may have been a five year old controlling Manchester and a eighteen year old controlling Barcelona on a PES8 game. This explains a lot.

2. All of the TV footage of the Bosnia conflict in the early 90s was in fact prototype demos for the Call Of Duty franchise we all know and love.

3. And recent footage of the Navy Seals "attempted capture" of Osama Bin Laden looked really like the "Tower Of Babel" level from DOOM.

More such stories are being discovered by journalists around the world. There's even rumors that all of the Arab Spring aerial coverage could have game footage of the popular tactical game Command And Conquer. This looks like a story that could really rumble on and on.

Make Backandtotheleft's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
