Chicago News Station Confuses Pyeongchang With P.F. Chang’s on Graphic

Chicago News Station Confuses Pyeongchang With P.F. Chang’s on Graphic

Their lettuce wraps deserve a gold medal, but that’s beside the point

Pyeongchang is a county in South Korea currently full of world-class athletes competing in the Winter Olympics. P.F. Chang’s is a chain restaurant full of moderately priced Asian-inspired foods with locations across the U.S. Chang 2018” instead of “Pyeongchang 2018” during a live report.

Jayme Nicholas, a spokesperson for the channel, told the Chicago Tribune that the gaffe resulted from the use of a joke-image reportedly made for a “satirical piece” to be used by sports anchor Mark Giangreco. However, it ran during a serious news story read by weekend anchor Mark Rivera. Nicholas apologized on behalf of the station for the error.

Twitter found the whole situation hilarious, and even hoped for a P.F. Chang’s comeback.

P.F. Chang’s even joined in on the fun. Their Twitter account tweeted about the mistake lightheartedly. “Contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games,” they wrote, followed by a smiley face emoji.

It’s definitely for the best that the chain is not hosting the Winter Olympics, because who can really ice luge with a belly full of kung pao chicken?

Whoops: TV station confuses PyeongChang with P.F. Chang's

A Chicago TV station confused South Korea’s Winter Olympics host county of PyeongChang with a popular restaurant offering quasi-upscale Orange Peel Shrimp and Hand-Folded Crab Wontons last weekend.

WLS-Ch.7 had an on-air blunder that resulted in the logo “P.F. Chang 2018” during its local Olympics coverage.

P.F. Chang’s is, of course, an Asian-inspired restaurant chain where you occasionally surrender to dining at. PyeongChang is a county in the province of Gangwon-do, located in the Taebaek Mountains region of South Korea.

A spokesperson explained to the Chicago Tribune that the graphic was created for a “satirical piece” in which “viewers were encouraged to invent their own Olympic sports.” But it was mistakenly used during serious news coverage. The station apologized for the error. But if anybody wants to build a giant luge that delivers Crispy Honey Chicken we’re all for it.

Note that the number of Olympic rings in the graphic is also wrong — four instead of six — which presumably was also part of the parody segment.
