Another misplaced online advertisement

The All Blacks were pitiful. And I gleaned that just from the edited highlights on the news.

Now everyone is calling for Graham Henry’s head to roll. Sorry to disappoint you but he’s just been signed up til after the next World Cup.

So, while reading the NZ Herald article on the beating that the All Blacks are suffering at the hands of the foreign press I couldn’t help but be drawn to this lovely online ad for Mastercard.

Featuring Richie McCaw the advertisement from Mastercard encourages us to “Try the All Blacks line-out challenge”. Slightly ironic perhaps, given that the All Blacks couldn’t win any lineouts.

I checked the same story tonight and the advertisement is gone – replaced with white space. Oh dear.

Update: seems I was premature and that Mastercard are standing behind the men in black – the add miraculously appeared. It’s still funny.
