Brands Make Most Of Germany's 7-1 World Cup Semifinal Win Over Host Brazil
Tesco, Paddy Power and adidas "are among the brands to have made the most of Germany's 7-1 thrashing of the hosts, Brazil," in the first World Cup semifinal on Tuesday night, according to Maisie McCabe of CAMPAIGN LIVE. On Twitter, Tesco "made a joke referencing the way pool players sometimes place a piece of paper under a pool table if the surface is wobbly." Tesco also "made a German-related pun on the word 'worst' and a type of German sausage."
Is the pitch tilted? Quick, someone slip a folded up receipt under Brazil's goal. #BrazilvsGermany— Tesco (@Tesco) July 8, 2014
Sony, meanwhile, "recreated the game with Subbuteo figures in a Vine that has been retweeted more than 300 times since being posted" at 12:44am Wednesday morning.CAMPAIGN LIVE, 7/9).
