Description (in 100 Words Or Fewer): Paddy Power Is A Betting Firm, With A Reputation For Making Mischief. With The World Cup Coming To Brazil, We Saw The Opportunity To Have Some Fun – And Do Some Good At The Same Time.
We Started By Leaking Some Fake Photos, Which Suggested Wed Chopped Down Some Of The Amazon Rainforest.
When The Story Filtered Through, Social Media Went Nuts.
It Was Only After 48 Hours Of Violent Abuse, That We Used Social Media To Admit That “We Didnt Give The Rainforest A Brazilian” – And To Reveal That We Had Been Working With Environmental Charities All Along.
