When we talk about Internet gold, this is what we’re talking about.
During an Olympic broadcast, an ABC affiliate Chicago TV station LITERALLY confused PyeongChang, the host of the 2018 Winter Olympics, with P.F. Chang’s the host of asian food (P.F. Chang’s is a super huge Chinese food chain restaurant).
WLS 7 aired “P.F. Chang” with the Olympic rings throughout the ENTIRE segment.

A spokesperson for the station said it was graphics “mix-up,” and that the P.F. Chang’s pun (?) was for an earlier “satirical piece.” Apparently they used the graphic twice.
I may not be an athlete competing in Pyongyang, but I definitely compete in P.F. Chang's

P.F Chang’s reassured everyone that the Olympics aren’t going on it their restaurants:
