The ABCs of Proofreading

One of my favorite tumblrs, tweeters and Instagrammers, lunchyprices, spotted the below typo on her TV screen recently and had the wherewithal to capture it quick. Apparently, an entire ad agency department, the client and everyone at ABC all missed this, which is pretty baffling. (Either that, or US Weekly can't spell.) In all my years, I've never seen such an egregious typo on national TV. Sure, there's been a you're instead of a your in a subscript here or there, but nothing like this. What about you all? Let us know if you've seen major flubs like this and what it was. [UPDATE! A reader named dreamer55 alerts us to the fact that this particular ad is for the ABC show Revenge (@revenge)]
