Official video for Chicago NATO summit riddled with mistakes

NATO's official video for its May 20-21 Chicago summit, posted today, is filled with amusing inaccuracies. For instance, did you know that:

* Chicago is the capital of Illinois?

* President Obama grew up in Chicago?

* Lake Michigan is one of the Trans-Atlantic Lakes?

* the founder of the Chicago Tribune built McCormick Place?

"We have requested that the inaccuracies be corrected," Chicago NATO 2012 told me via Twitter.

At least the video features a reference to Al Capone and closes with a shot of the beloved Marilyn Monroe statue outside Trib Tower.
