A documentary on Western, state-run propaganda used during World War I is being shown on Russia's Channel One, where the doco used a fan-drawn poster from Team Fortress 2.




The poster was drawn during a publicity campaign back in 2009 when TF2 was rolling out with a new update, which saw a backstory for the conflict between two of its classes: Soldier and Demoman. The posted itself says "Join Team Demoman TODAY" instead of the usual "Join the Marines" that the posters would've said all that time ago. Blogger Nikita Likhacehev spotted the posted in the documentary, which has now ended up being reported about online.
