This Anti-Gambling Advert Backfired Spectacularly After Germany Thrashed Brazil

Germany for the win.

1. The National Council on Problem Gambling in Singapore thought it was on to a winner when it made this advert warning of the dangers of betting all your money on an unlikely result.

The charity was highlighting a genuine problem, but it couldn’t have picked a worse team for its fictional betting scenario, as was proved by the result last night.

2. “Who do you think is going to win the World Cup?”

“My dad said Brazil win.”

“No, no. Argentina is going to win because Messi is going to dribble past everyone.”

3. “How about you, Andy?”

4. “I hope Germany will win… My dad bet all my savings on them.”

6. Awkwardly, it looks like Andy’s dad could be in some serious money soon after Germany thrashed Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals.
