Commercial Break: Paddy needs a whack for this shocker

20 July 2009

Let’s kick off the week with one of the most wretched ads we’ve seen since we all got back from having a poo at Paul’s. Paddy Power are the culprits for this one as they try to make online gambling look like a sexy, thrusting way to spend your life.

Tragically, they’ve chosen a crapluar parody as their advertorial weapon, creating a spoof of those old-school men’s body spray ads that haunted the 1970s and 1980s.

But it’s obvious that the budget for this one was lower than a snake’s belly, and Paddy Power have ended up with something that looks as though a gang of media studies students made it for a laugh and bunged it up on YouTube.

Horrible stuff that made us want to chew our own elbows off. Anyway, we all know the house always wins.

    I love the dents in the deodorant can. Could they not spray paint a new one?

    Most of the budget was spent on burning that bank note (was it 50 euro?)
