Comical news recently as a documentary on Russia’s Channel One used a fan made poster based around Team Fortress 2, saying they were US propaganda posters from World War 1. The documentary said that the poster portrayed German’s as monsters, monsters who ate babies, fact. The only problem is that the soldier pictures is actually the Soldier from TF2, not an imagining of a German one.

The show, which many have said is probably a result of rising tensions between Russia and the US, used the poster as clear evidence to show that the US tried to demonize its enemies.

“regardless of any logic or common sense,” according to the International Business Times. “The American public had to firmly acknowledge that Germans were evil,” the narrator says.

In any case the Russian’s have got it wrong! After doing some research, TJournal.ru found that the image was created by DeviantArt user TankTaur for a Team Fortress 2 propaganda contest.
