Commenting article: Tourism Official Slams Bulgarian President for 'Colorado' Blunder

Rumen Draganov, head of Bulgaria's Institute for Analysis and Assessment of Tourism, has criticized President Rosen Plevneliev for the embarrassing image shown on TV during his New Year speech.

In his first New Year speech since assuming office in 2012, Plevneliev praised the country for its unique nature while a picture on the background showed  a picturesque mountain landscape with snow-covered peaks and lush meadows.

The landscape in question was later recognized as being a picture from the Rocky Mountains in the US State of Colorado, which prompted ridicule on social networks.

Of course they shouldn't pay copyright to Colorado, they should charge them for advertising for them!
