THE  Moscow Times says Russia’s state TV network Channel One broadcast the above poster as an example of WWI US propaganda. You might know it better as fan art for the video game Team Fortress 2. 

The Moscow Times:

A voiceover claimed the painting had been created by a U.S. organization called the Committee on Public Information, which allegedly created propaganda posters of “German monsters” to get the message across that “Germans are the devil incarnate…”

The poster was actually created by a Finnish artist who goes by the nickname TankTaur, TJournal reported. It was published on the DeviantArt website in 2009 and can still be found there.

You can see how they were fooled. Get a load of this stuff…
