What is the 'blooper' here ?

All I could find was that their electric guitars weren't plugged in !

Is that it ?

You're right, he does, too !

Trouble was, he & the band had to pretend to be the backing singers as well !

Oh, good - I got it !

Film directors often do things like that to keep things looking 'tidier' !

Sort of 'showbiz licence' more than an actual 'blooper'.

Like the fact that Elvis has no [visible] mic, & yet all the crowd can hear him...

It always makes me smile to see a leader riding up & down in front of a huge army, giving an inspirational speech before a battle &
they get all fired up & ready to fight, when in real life, only the first few rows would hear what he was saying !

Braveheart was a case in point....

The cups of coffee get handed out, but it's obvious they are empty.

This is similar to what I call "the empty suitcase syndrome".

ALL suitcases in ALL the movies are empty. I can understand that.

But, at least, they could pretend to be carrying a load !
