SCHAUMBURG, IL - AUGUST 04: A statue of a horse stands at the entrance to a P.F. Chang's restaurant on August 4, 2014 in Schaumburg, Illinois. P.F. Chang's China Bistro Ltd. said today that the company experienced a data breach involving customers' credit and debit card information which affected 33 restaurants in 16 states, including the Schaumburg, Illinois location.

Chicago’s local news station WLS-ABC 7 made a bizarre goof, when they accidentally broadcasted a graphic that referred to the Winter Olympics host city as P.F. Chang instead of PyeongChang.

The station apologized, saying that the graphic was meant for another, “satirical piece,” but was accidentally used during a serious news report.

P.F. Chang’s got wind of this, and Tweeted, quote, “Contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games.”

And they later capitalized on it by launching a social media contest called the “P.F. Chang’s Games 2018.”
