Picture claiming to show Day of the Dead drone mild show in Mexico City is fake

Crowds gathered en masse across Mexico on Monday, Nov. 1 with traditional visits to graveyards for the annual Day of the Lifeless celebrations. Day of the Dead, or Dia de Los Muertos, is a vacation celebrated yearly from Oct. 31 by way of Nov. 2, but was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

One photograph claiming to be from a celebration seems to show a huge mild present set up created using drones over Mexico Metropolis. One tweet posted on Nov. 1 had more than 38,000 retweets and over 350,000 likes as of Nov. 2.

A Reddit thread with the photo had greater than 450 comments and over 22 thousand votes. The publish was later eliminated by moderators.

VERIFY can confirm this photograph was not taken from Mexico City but was instead taken from an overlook that reveals Japan’s Mt. Fuji.

The same landscape, roads, and traffic patterns are seen within the edited tweet are visually just like the landscape seen on this photo posted to the Flickr account of Japanese artist Koshi Chiba., by Getty Images, has several photos of Mt. Fuji on their website, each closely matches what was shared by Chiba in 2014.

Google Maps also has an image of Mt. Fuji from an overlook that additionally confirms the situation.

VERIFY couldn’t identify the origin of the skull digital art.
