An Organizing for Action advertisement to raise the minimum wage for hard working Americans features a British woman riding a London subway train.

The Telegraph reports:

Set to rising music, the 30-second commercial features a medley of images of hard-working Americans going about their day.

There’s only one problem: one of those “hard-working Americans” is in fact a London Overground commuter.

A woman featured in the advert’s opening seconds is riding aboard the London train system as she looks wistfully out the window and clutches a coffee cup.

Over her shoulder, a map shows the London Overground’s eastern-most stations of New Cross and Surrey Quays.
