A world without Turkey – annoyance over Continental video

In Continental’s promotional video, Turkey appeared to have sunk into the sea

A promotional video released by Continental has gained the ire of many internet users with Turkish roots. The reason for this is that Continental has, in animation, pushed Turkey into the sea.

The video from Conti’s Powertrain division depicts the countries of the world where it offers its drive system technology or operates a related subsidiary. However the animation clearly shows a map of the world in which Turkey is almost entirely absent, and in its place only water can be seen.

Continental has apologised for the oversight on its Turkish market Facebook page, and the promotional video has now been deleted.
