Paddy Power Gets Laughs Over Scotlands Failed Euro 2016 Bid

Internet betting group Paddy Power has released their latest controversial ad, mocking Scotland for failing to qualify for the Euro 2016 football tournament.

Paddy Power has published a new television spot wherein they poke fun at Scotland for not qualifying for the tournament. The ad is the latest one that will catch controversy for Paddy Power, who in the past has made it appear that they destroyed rain forest to cheer on England, made fun of convicted pedophile Rolf Harris in a traveling billboard, and has become known for flying balloons that resemble a pair of underwear.

Paddy Power has posted the ad online, and it can be viewed below:

The Euro 2016 tournament kicked off last weekend in France, and will see Europe's top football teams going at it in order to claim supremacy for the continent.

Yes it might be but they are quite offended generally in their adverts, England are not so successful too at the biggest events even if they do participate most of the times so not exactly that the English based company in a position of making laugh of the Scottish team.

I love it, nothing like a bit of tongue in cheek humour playing on the long held animosity between Scotland and England. I like that the ad takes the piss out of both sides - nothing too unkind Joking Controversy gets you talked about which is what Paddy Power are after.

Agreed klaw, nothing too unkind to both sides, in fact one of the nicest adverts Paddy Power have made probably.
