Not everyone could watch the inauguration of the new government on January 7 live on television. For this very reason, the public broadcaster ORF has a TVThek, where programs are streamed up to one week after broadcast. However, something unexpected happened to this very important ceremony: the ORF accidentally added the wrong subtitles.

Instead, lines from the third episode of the telenovela “Alisa – Folge deinem Herzen” (Alisa – Follow your heart) were shown.

We have translated some of the best moments created by this unfortunate incident for you:

The main program of ORF 2 as well as the TVthek livestream were not affected; the correct subtitles were displayed. According to ORF, the erroneous subtitles were “immediately deleted and replaced by the correct ones” in the TVthek. They regret the incident and apologized for it.
