Earlier this month, when Air France flight 447 disappeared off the coast of Brazil, it was a horrific tragedy. Total nightmare fuel. The fact that an airplane carrying 228 people who were now undoubtedly dead bore very mild resemblance to the plot of a popular if sometimes off-the-rails supernatural television show with ever-declining ratings was beside the point. Everyone who likes Lost should have and mostly did keep their weird dark thoughts about how a genuine disaster with a real human cost vaguely resembles the plot elements of one of their favorite shows (minus season three, which stunk) to themselves.
Then, a couple of weeks later, some plane wreckage was found in the water but it turned out that the wreckage was NOT from Air France flight 447. That must have been terrible for the families of the missing passengers and crew who just want answers at this point to what happened to their loved ones. But again, for the miserable souls of Lost fans, there was that secret delight that shall not speak its name in the fact that this, too, seemed to mirror the fact that Charles Widmore bought that airplane and sank it to the bottom of the ocean complete with fake bodies, or real bodies but bought off of some kind of dead bodies black market, or something, to keep the island’s secret safe. The parallel was definitely weird, but we smartly kept our mouths shut (kind of) and respected the fact that the ties between this real event and the television show Lost were tangential at best, and were useless or even detrimental in trying to ease the actual pain of people whose lives were affected.
And now, apparently, a Bolivian news program has claimed to have the first pictures of what happened aboard Air France flight 447, but they’re actually just SCREENCAPS FROM LOST. This is getting stupid bananas. Video evidence after the jump.
I don’t actually understand any of the words that she is saying, but I really hope it translates to “These are pictures from the TV show Lost of a fictional plane crash. Because we are not retarded.”
And also :42 in this video:
Seriously ridiculous. On behalf of Lost fans everywhere, I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone who may have been affected by the crash of Air France flight 447. We are the worst. Life imitating art imitatin[gunshot].
They have jails in Bolivia, right? They should use them! (Via ONTD.)
