Team Fortress 2 poster used in Russian documentary on WWI propaganda

Russia’s Channel One recently showed a series on the various types of propaganda posters that were used by the West during World War I. Unfortunately, the historical show clearly didn't do enough research because they utilised a  Team Fortress 2  poster as an example. Oops!The poster was created by an artist on DeviantArt called Tank Taur. It was designed in response to Valve’s 2009 updates to the team based shooter. That update fleshed out the backstory of a number of Team Fortress 2 characters and initiated a rivalry between the Soldier and the Demoman classes. Valve prompted players to pick a side and the result was the creation of many fan made pieces of art such as the one that was mistaken for actual World War I propaganda.
