The 2014 World Cup kicks of today in Brazil, and yesterday we saw a photo that appears to show the Japanese team’s private jet, a jet that was plastered with Pokemon art. It was a hoax.
Kotaku reports that the photo was bogus. In case you missed it, look:

The Twitter account seems official doesn’t it? But in actual fact the team arrived in this plane:
Yawn. I give it 6/10.
Kotaku has loads of photos of the plane through here. Hoax absolutely exposed it seems.
