BBC News Makes Accidental Halo Reference

During a BBC news broadcast about the United Nations involvement in the Syrian conflict, someone made a goof and put up the wrong logo.  Instead of the usual United Nations logo, the fictional UNSC (United Nations Space Command) logo from the Halo games was placed in the background.  The BBC later apologized for the mistake, and admitted that this sort of thing happens on occasion.

Sorry Halo fans, it looks like the Master Chief won’t be dual-wielding his way through the Syrian Crisis.  This story has me wondering if this was a legitimate mistake, or the work of a playful Halo fan among the staff at the BBC.  While this logo has been removed from all following news broadcasts, the denizens of the internet were kind enough to post a video on YouTube.
