A creative Arsenal fan has succeeded in fooling much of the media by manipulating a video recording of Thomas Vermaelen apparently disrespecting a Tottenham pennant immediately before the clubs met in the FA Cup at the Emirates Saturday.
In the video below, the Arsenal captain seems to turn the Tottenham pennant away from the camera, when in fact he actually did the very opposite - as the creative Arsenal fan cleverly reversed the footage, giving the impression that the Arsenal defender was stirring things up.
The media and many Tottenham fans were fooled by the clip.
Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-0 in the game, with goals from Cazorla and Tomáš Rosický.
Walcott also hit the headlines for his gesture of the 2-0 score line which he showed to Tottenham fans as the England international was stretchered off injured past them.
