Paddy Power, Ireland’s largest bookmaker, is running “Nothing We Can Do About That”, an advertising campaign offering free prizes for people who face unfair circumstances. Online at www.nothingwecandoaboutthat.com, Facebook and Twitter, the campaign provides a series of humorous commercials as inspiration for a video competition, Blind Footballers, Shower, Email and the not-suitable-for-television Takeway.

    The Blind Footballers ad is now under investigation by the Advertising Standards Association, who have received over 400 complaints about the way it portrays blind people and condones cruelty to animals. The ad actually includes some genuine sight-impaired footballers, several of whom are likely to represent England in this summer’s World Blind Football Championships, including the team captain, Ajmal Ahmed.
