Mountain Dew mistake

(WXYZ) — Mountain Dew is holding a contest to celebrate the 50 states, but they made a little mistake with Michigan.

As you can see from the video below, our state's Upper Pennisula has been made a part of WISCONSIN!

It goes by fast, so here's a still we grabbed from the YouTube video.

The promotional campaign is part of the comapny's Dewniuted States program, which is decribed on the website as:

To kick off June, the DEWnited States program launched by celebrating DEW® Nation and giving them unique and collectible custom state bottle graphics that demonstrate all the ways that they show their state pride. As an accompaniment to the DEWnited States Program, MTN DEW® is bringing along our flavor-forward MTN DEW® Liberty Brew. We are celebrating all 50 states by creating a similar blend of our own: 50 flavors packed into one delicious MTN DEW®.

As part of the program, the company is creating and releasing videos themed to each individual state. So far Arkansas and Alabama have been released.

It's unclear as yet if the UP blunder will be included in the Michigan video.
