The image above is one of the many that Konami has released to promote Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And while it--like the rest of the game--looks very nice, you wouldn't expect anyone who looks at it for more than a moment to think it's an actual photograph. Yet that appears to be exactly what someone working for television network RT (formerly Russia Today) mistakenly thought.

As part of a news report this week on child soldiers, RT show SophieCo spoke with Emmanuel Jal, a former child soldier who is now a hip-hop artist. At one point, the camera pans by a screen displaying the screenshot seen above--too quickly for most to realize what they were looking at wasn't a photograph, except for one Tumblr user who did notice (via Kotaku).

You can check out the GIF below or watch the full video (which I couldn't help but notice uses music from one of the Ocean's Eleven movies) at RT; the moment in question happens at the 5:50 mark.
