A photo gained some traction on the Internet on Tuesday that had everyone laughing at the New York Mets.
The team gave away 15,000 promotional toy trucks with the Mets logo on them Sunday, but there was just one problem.

The Mets obviously didn’t mean to give away a truck with the logo of their National League East rivals, the Philadelphia Phillies, on them, but luckily for them, it was a small mistake. It’s possible that no one else — or at least no one on Twitter — received a mixed-up truck.
And the Mets weren’t the only ones to make the mistake.
The Phillies held the same promotion a week earlier, and a fan wound up with a Mets truck.

Hit Promotional Products, the vendor that made the trucks, apologized in a statement via ESPN, and they said they attributed the mistake to “human error.”
“We believe this is a very isolated issue that hadn’t occurred in the past but will address to make sure mistakes like this don’t occur in the future,” the statement read.
