An animated advertisement for an upcoming series may have been too real for viewers watching the Detroit Grand Prix on Sunday.

The ad was for the ABC reality game show 'Wipe Out' and featured a man stumbling and then falling over. The ad was perfectly timed with a camera shot of Grand Prix cars whipping around a turn, so that it appeared someone had stumbled out onto the track and then was hit by one of the cars.

Luckily, the ad went away quick enough to eliminate any thought that there was an injury, but the timing is so perfect, you wonder if they planned it this way.
