Irish sports book Paddy Power are famous for their bold and irreverent publicity stunts. Some of them are polarizing, others are pretty funny. The David Moyes statue is pretty clever, no matter what club you support. Paddy Power placed a David Moyes statue outside of Anfield ahead of Liverpool’s 0-2 loss to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon “for services to Liverpool Football Club.”
The bookmakers placed a man in a grim reaper costume right behind the Manchester United dugout during their 2-0 defeat to Everton last weekend; the final game in which Moyes coached. Paddy also flew a plane over Old Trafford with a message about the odds of a Fergie return.
Paddy Power knows how to exploit the passions of a prolific rivalry. Here’s a shot of the David Moyes statue. The girl in the photo is pretty hot!
