在喜迎2019之际,全球各地都推出了各种跨年活动:比如晚会啦、表演啦、烟花秀啦~

作为澳大利亚的大城市,悉尼在这方面自然不甘人后,然而他们却以一种令人意想不到的方式成功抢占头条!

为了迎接2019年的到来,悉尼港口地区举行了盛大的烟花秀。观众被秀得眼晕,整体效果堪称完美——但唯一的问题是:他们把新年的年份搞错了!

The spectacular fireworks show on Sydney's harbour that rang in 2019 and dazzled spectators around the world was picture perfect, except for one element - it got the year wrong.

当天,有超过150万人聚集在悉尼港前观看表演,然而人们却发现,在悉尼海港大桥上投射出的祝福语写成了:“2018新年快乐!”

More than 1.5 million people packed the harbour front of Australia's largest city to watch the extravaganza, and noticed a signage beamed onto one of the Sydney Harbour Bridge's pylons had the words "Happy New Year 2018!".



外媒忍不住要皮一下~

《悉尼晨锋报》网站:“哦不,还是2018年!悉尼海港大桥上的投影出错了!”
 

如果《悉尼晨锋报》还比较含蓄的话,英国的《地铁报》(Metro)就很直白了:

“这个失误尴尬了,悉尼重新迎来2018年”



据《悉尼晨锋报》报道,这次表演耗费8.5吨烟花,斥资578万澳元。按照澳大利亚新南威尔士旅游部门的统计,这是澳大利亚最大的公众活动,每年为当地经济创收1.33亿澳元。

The fireworks display were composed of 8.5 tonnes of fireworks, costing a whopping $5.78 million. The spectacle is Australia's largest public event and brings in $133 million annually for the local economy, according to Destination NSW.



虽然现场只有少数人发现了这个问题,但照片在社交媒体上一下子就传开了~

Only a select few though were clever enough to recognise the mistake. Photos of the typo were shared on social media sites.

“2019新年快乐!@悉尼,这是打错字了吗?”

 
“哦不,2018又来了!”

 
“悉尼海港大桥上的错字,把澳大利亚送回了2018年”


新年烟花秀的负责人安娜•麦金纳尼表示,整个团队对于这样的失误都“不开心”,不过他们可以一笑了之。

New Year's Eve executive producer Anna McInerney said while the team was not "pleased" by the mistake they were able to have a laugh about it and move on.

“对于这样规模的活动,我们花了15个月的时间来组织筹备,尽管出了错误,但是我们可以澄清:今年确实是2019年。让我们把重点放在昨晚精彩的表演上吧,除了那一闪而过的问题,整个环节几乎没有问题。”

"It takes 15 months to organise an event of this size and scale," she said. "It was a mistake but we can clarify that it is actually 2019. Let's focus on the great stuff that happened last night, it was incident-free despite a little bit of lightning."

那么话说回来了,要是真穿越回了2018年,你感觉如何呢?
