'Downton Abbey' Cast Posts Hilarious Photo After Their Historical Error (PHOTO)

LOL 2

The cast of Downton Abbey stepped out of their serious characters to respond to a hilarious mistake that appeared in one of the press photos recently released in anticipation of its upcoming fifth season.

If you recall, in one image of Robert Crawley and Lady Edith posing in front of an ornate fireplace, a very modern water bottle was spotted by all, just sitting there next to some regal 1920s vases.

Oops!

Well, rather than brush off their glaring mistake or be embarrassed by it and hope it goes away, the awesome cast joined forces to take a super-funny photo response that they posted to the show's official Instagram.

Alongside a caption that read: "The cast of #Downton embraced 'water-bottle gate' today," we get this amazing photo:

Perfect!

It can't be easy achieving historical accuracy at all times while working on this wonderful show, so we have to let these folks off the hook once in awhile. And it's good to know the actors and actresses who make Downton one of TV's best dramas also have a good appreciation for humor.

What do you think about the cast's response to its press photo mistake?
