Paddy Power has recently been in the media the last year for a variety of hoax’s they have played on the citizens of England. Earlier on this year Paddy Power went to the British Billboard Music Awards, dressing up two of their employee’s as Dead Mouse and then those employee’s stripped down to their underwear which had the Paddy Power Logo. This resulted in Paddy Power receiving free advertising and having a massive increase in player activity.
Today the casino posted an image that read “C’mon England PP” which was a message towards the English Fifa Football Team, the media then revolted against Paddy Power believing that the casino actually tore down a Brazilian Rainforest in order to root for their home team, this image was nothing more than another hoax from Paddy Power.
Paddy Power made a direct comment to the media after they were torn up in the media, their statement read: “We would have thought that everyone would have been smart enough to realize that we’d never decimate a Brazilian Rainforest in order to root for England. We are an online gambling casino and don’t have the means to do something like this, even if we did we would never even consider it. We consider ourselves to be pranksters and people should come to accept that most of the time we aren’t being serious with our advertisements.”
Paddy Power was essentially saying screw you as they have been working with Greenpeace for the last two years saving the very same forest that was in the image. If only the media had done their research.
