兩位同學在不同群組貼了這短片- flying penguins,加附文字如下:

「原來企鵝不但會飛,起飛像飛機需要加速,卻一直以為只是晃來晃去的走路。」

「企鵝不但會飛,且速度超快的,起飛前像似飛機起飛需要加速,難得一見!」

 

看後雖知不可能,但想是BBC製作的,或許是新知也說不定?趕緊查查,才知是BBC在2008年製出的愚人節惡作劇!

製作過程的講解

 

原來愚人節的惡作劇是人所追求的樂趣,就說怎麼連國外的媒體也會製造假象呢?!

10 Greatest April Fool's Pranks - as part of the news and politics series by GeoBeats.
Here are the 10 greatest April Fool's Pranks.

 

Number 10 - On April 1st, 1957, BBC reported that due to a mild winter, Swiss farmers were seeing a spaghetti harvest and there was spaghetti hanging from the trees. Many phoned in asking how they could grow their own.
Number 9 - In 1981, The Daily Mail reported that due to a translation error, a Japanese man thought the London marathon was 26 DAYS long vs. 26 miles and he was still out somewhere running.
Number 8 - In 1996, a Taco Bell ad indicated that the company had bought the Liberty Bell and it was to be renamed to Taco Liberty Bell. When the White House press secretary was asked about this sale, he remarked that Lincoln Memorial had also been sold to its new owner Ford Motor Co.
Number 7 - In 1998, Burger King launched a special whopper for left-handed people. Its USA Today ad claimed that the ingredients had been rotated 180 degrees to cater specifically to the left-handed citizens.
Number 6 - In 1994, the PC Computing magazine informed readers of a Congressional Bill that would ban using the internet while being drunk. The report resulted in numerous angry calls by concerned citizens.
Number 5 - A 2008
BBC video showed that a tv crew had discovered flying penguins who traveled thousands of miles during each winter to enjoy the sun in South America.
Number 4 - A 1965 report by a newspaper in Copenhagen announced the passing of a new law which mandated all dogs to be painted white so they could be seen better at night.
Number 3 - A 2000 report in The Independent stated that researchers in Florida had come up with a pill, similar to Viagra, for sexually unsatisifed pets.
Number 2 - A German radio station in 1993 reported that a new city law required runners to go no more than 6 miles per hour in the city park. They did not want to distract the squirrels who were going through their mating season.
Number 1 - A New Mexicans for Science and Reasons newsletter published in April, 1998 reported that the state of Alabama had proposed to round off the value of pi and change it from 3.14 to 3.

這名單上,BBC兩次上榜!看來他們是樂此不疲了!這算不算誤導?
