Fan-made Battlefield 2 Video Mistaken For Terrorist Propaganda

The video above shows scenes from Battlefield 2, snippets of Team America: World Police, and a speech by President George W. Bush. It was nothing more than an in-game movie made by a fan to show off his skills and tell a little story. US officials thought otherwise.

They actually thought this video was a terrorist propaganda. But let’s give them guys some credit – they did have basis as to why they jumped to such conclusions. The content of the video and the name of the movie creator SonicJihad led someone to making some rash judgement. And if that someone knew the artist Paris (no, not that heiress), it’s understandable why he was led to believe that the video is meant for political means.

Paris is known for his songs that critics the ills of society. His latest album, Sonic Jihad, contains the song Bush Killa, which started with the following lyrics: “(30 seconds of Bush news snippets) Ooooh look, it’s the president! Hey Mr. President! “Okay, there he go. Easy, easy, don’t lose sight, wait. Two, three and…NOW! (gunshots, screaming)”.

But then again, the video was NOT from Paris himself. A little online search could have informed the officials of that. They could have focused their time on more serious political threats.
