Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) latest ad opens with the line, “It’s morning again in America,” but the ad features the Vancouver skyline and harbor, The Vancouver Sun reported Monday.

The newspaper points out that the three seconds of stock footage features Harbour Centre, One Wall Centre and the Port Metro Vancouver cranes.

“It’s unmistakably Vancouver,” the Sun wrote.

The tugboat also features a Canadian flag, according to BuzzFeed News, who first flagged the footage on Monday.

The size and length of the ad buy was not immediately clear.

Vancouver-based videographer Guy Chavasse told CBC News on Monday that he shot the scene last August.

“It’s pretty funny, isn’t it?” he told the CBC. “It’s a good-looking video, no doubt, but it’s pretty recognizable as Vancouver.”

Chavasse estimated the campaign paid $80 for his footage. He said he’s not a “Republican fan” or Rubio supporter.
