Can You Spot The GIANT Mistake In This New ‘Downton Abbey’ Photo?

Downton Abbey released a series of new still portraits to promote the upcoming fifth season, and fans were thrilled to see characters such as Lord Gillingham, Lady Mary, Isobel Crawley, Bates and Anna, Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes, Thomas, Cora, Daisy and others back in all of their royal glory.

However, fans also started to notice that the PBS period drama made one glaring mistake in a photo of Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) and Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael).

In the image, the two can be seen standing in front of a mantle and looking very 1920s-esque…except for one thing!

So what was the big blunder? Well, see if you can spot it…

It appears that SOMEONE accidentally left a plastic water bottle on the mantle in the background, which of course, were NOT around back in the 20s.

As predicted, social media has been crawling with those eager to poke fun at the pic, with British photographer Darren Bell dubbing it a #PhotoFail. Oops!

Downton Abbey is set to return in January, but don’t expect to see any plastic water bottles lingering about in season five!
