A public sign has been displayed in Coimbatore, India to commemorate Nelson Mandela but ended up being a huge FAIL when an image of American actor Morgan Freeman was mistaken for the late president of South Africa. Alongside Freeman, the poster also includes images of Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr. According the the Huffington Post, the included text translates to the following:

Among today's politicians who cannot think beyond the next election cycle, Nelson Mandela was a leader who thought of the well-being of future generations. He went to join Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King on 5.12.13. We bow down to him, proud to have lived during his time on earth and praise his message of love, non-violence and sacrifice. "The farmer may sleep, but the seeds he planted never will.

The man responsible for the poster plans to have it amended.
