This Coin Flip Photo From Nike is a Lie (Pic)

Nike fake coin toss photo

Nike Tweeted out this Coin Flip Photo from tonight’s College Football Championship Game between Ohio State and Oregon:

Some people, like ESPN’s Don Van Natta Jr., thought it was real. So they retweeted it in amazement:

Well, we hate to break it to you, folks, but this isn’t a miracle. It’s a fake. Nike used actors, or photoshop, or something else to falsely create this image.

We know this because we have the real image from tonight’s opening coin toss.  Notice the players’ numbers aren’t even the same as those in Nike’s fake coin flip photo?

College Football Championship coin toss

Nice try, Nike.
