An unidentified local news station celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of couple "Max and Geraldine Bailey" during a "Birthdays & Anniversaries" segment, except that they showed a picture of actor Mickey Rourke and Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose instead.

That photo of Rourke and Rose was taken at a boxing match in Los Angeles earlier this month and garnered reactions like these:
