A South African budget airline has pulled its tongue-in-cheek advert after Fifa complained that it infringed its trademark during the 2010 World Cup.
kulula.com's ad described the firm as the "Unofficial National Carrier of the You-Know-What". It also contained pictures of stadiums, vuvuzelas and national flags.
A statement from football's august world governing body said, "For the record, FIFA did not tell Kulula that they could not use soccer balls, or the word '
', or the South Africa stadium, or the national flag or vuvuzelas," Cape Town
It was the combination of these elements which were banned, the statement said.
Good to see that they have their priorities right and aren’t wasting time sorting out:
The cheats in the game, like
The increasing amount of overpaid Nancy-boy players who seem to have every nerve end in their body somehow attached to their face
The incompetent match officials who will spectacularly make an arse of it during the forthcoming competition
Just for the record:
Her's the name
' South Africa
And here’s a picture of
A Soccer Ball
and The National Flag of
and People with Vuvuzelas
Bring it on Fifa.
