Fans of the show 'Downton Abbey' got another look at the upcoming season with the release of cast photos this week. But its an unexpected prop in the background of one pic that is causing a few laughs.
The photo shows characters Lord Robert Crawley and Lady Edith Crawley standing in front of a fireplace covered with vases, a clock and a ... water bottle?
The upcoming season of Downton Abbey is set in the early 1920s, but as the Mirror notes, water bottles like the one seen in the cast photo didn't become popular until decades later.
The photo has since been taken down, E! reports. But some are still having fun with the 'photo fail' online and it's creating more buzz about the upcoming season.
Is the Downton Abbey photo fail just a clever and very subtle PR stunt? Please say it is! pic.twitter.com/VHP971eBeN— David Armstrong (@tiggtag) August 14, 2014
