While everyone else worried about whether or not Ghostbusters II‘s apocalyptic prediction for this year’s Valentine’s Day was true, the presidential campaign of junior Florida Senator Marco Rubio posted a new political ad on its YouTube page. Titled “Morning Again,” the one-minute spot opens with a montage of shots supposedly depicting everyday Americans going about their business in major cities and rural communities. Yet the first shot doesn’t appear to be from the United States at all. In fact, it kind of looks like Canada.

BuzzFeed first reported the offending shot on Monday after noticing what appears to be the iconic lookout tower at Vancouver’s Harbour Centre, located near the top right corner.

After a little bit of digging, the online media outlet found the source on Shutterstock. The ad’s opening seconds of a small boat tugging in front of an otherwise American city’s skyline was, in fact, cutting the Vancouver skyline in a 24-second video titled, “Boats Passing Near City At Sunset.”
