A spelling mistake has gone viral after late night comics jumped all over a story out of Courtenay B.C.

A typo in an ad for a photo session in the Comox Valley Record is getting international attention when Santa was misspelled as Satan.

CTV News Vancouver Island is reporting that the ad ran in the Nov. 21 edition of the Comox Valley Record and once the mistake was shared on social media the rest was history.

So far the error has now been posted in the New York Post and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
