Indian poster mistakes Morgan Freeman for Nelson Mandela

Oops.

When former South African President Nelson Mandela passed away earlier this month, people all over the world paused to remember the man known for taking down the racist system of apartheid.

Many nations had tributes for Mandela and world leaders assembled at a memorial service for him.

But Mandela's death also brought about confusion. The leader has been portrayed in numerous films and some got Mandela's likeness confused for an actor. Like Morgan Freeman.

A poster in southeastern India, meant to pay tribute to other great world leaders like Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King, Jr., but used a picture of Morgan instead of Mandela.

It's the thought that counts, right?
