Parody nation Pakistan never fail to entertain the Twitterati with their regular dose of gaffes. In the latest, a Pakistani Minister, Khurram Nawaz Gandapur on Saturday left the Twitterati in splits as he shared a video of a popular game Grand Theft Auto (GTA) V as if it were a real incident.
He shared a stimulation video on his Twitter handle, which he later deleted, in which a flight dramatically avoids collision with a fuel tanker while landing. He praised the presence of mind of the pilot for averting a major tragedy on a runway while landing.
Within minutes, the Pakistani minister post went viral on the microblogging site. Many Twitter users also responded by trying to guess the name of the game in the video clip while others trolled the minister for his ignorance.
Lol… Presence of mind or absence of mind? ???

Meanwhile, one Twitter user decided to give him the benefit of doubt by calling it a ‘generation gap’.
that’s not real but simulated , I am not into games but this day and age even games looks so real .
No offence to u , it’s just this generation gape that is causing such mistakes to ppl who r having a much older head on their shoulders

However, this is not the first time Pakistanis have made such self goals. Recently, in another gaffe that left the people on social media in splits, a Pakistani TV anchor confused Apple Inc with apple the fruit. She did not realize her mistake until the panelist himself corrected her and said he was actually referring to the company Apple Inc and not the fruit.
Recently, Pakistan made itself an object of ridicule, when, during the live streaming of the press conference of the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the cat filter got accidentally turned on, making the faces of the people look like cats.
