Spot the deliberate mistake...

YouTube video, purportedly of last night's Three Queens event in Southampton:


There is a reason I've posted this in off topic! ::)

That's amusing, Peter -- and a very pleasant film it is too!

But the weather is too good -- so it cannot have been yesterday in Southampton, if Rosie's report is anything to go by :) ...

Have I spotted the deliberate mistake?   8)

Not quite, Isabelle - it's a completely different event and certainly not the 3Q thing at all; it appears to be the evil eyed Aida ship throughout - even on the firework sequences at the end that unmistakable decorative style is visible!

I'm not sure if the uploader has simply made a genuine mistake and uploaded the wrong video or worse...!!

Hello Peter, I have temporarily moved your response out of the way, as I would not want to spoil the fun for anyone else  ;) .

Still smiling at the great puzzle you set us here... I wonder whether anyone can spot the deliberate mistake(s) you gave us to ponder... apart from the unexpectedly fine weather, that is  ;D .

And your response was only temporarily invisible and has now returned to its place.

'Our Queens' don't' wear lippy, or maybe when no-one's looking, do they perhaps? :)

An event on june5.2012 - published in May?
Bit strange 'this one', Peter!
QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Well, that was an amusing interlude! Thank you, Peter, for having brought this video (both the film and the "deliberate" mistake in the description) to our attention.

I have a soft spot for the AIDA ships -- maybe they too can be called queens (after all, Aida was a princess herself) and should perhaps add them to my "must try" list.

I am sure that this three queens meeting in Hamburg (but when was it, I wonder...) was a high-spirited and happy affair -- the fine weather would have helped of course.
