Having fun with beer from the Austrian town of Fucking

fucking hell beer A beer, which its creators claim is named after the town of Fucking in Austria has created a little 'outrage' after its promotional ad appeared on the website of the right-wing Austrian Freedom Party.

The beer in question is a light beer, so because the German word for light is hell , the beer has been named accordingly.

In 2010 the Trade Marks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union said that it had thrown out a complaint after people brought it to their attention that the trademarked name Fucking Hell was upsetting, accusatory and derogatory, reported the Austrian Times. The release from the office concluded:

The word combination claimed contains no semantic indication that could refer to a certain person or group of persons. Nor does it incite a particular act. It cannot even be understood as an instruction that the reader should go to hell.

Moscow road accidents reportedly blamed on advertising stunt

they attract russia advert An advertising campaign featuring  a woman's partially visible breasts has been blamed for more than 500 traffic accidents in one day.

The massive adverts placed on the side of 30 trucks driving around Moscow showed a woman's breasts cupped in her hands with the slogan They Attract on a banner obscuring the nipples.

The adverts were intended to show the powerful potential of advertising on the side of trucks.

But as the trucks trundled around the streets of the Russian capital, they reportedly left a trail of carnage as male drivers became so distracted they ploughed straight into each other. A total of 517 accidents were reported.

The police then sent out patrols to round up all the vehicles and impound them until the images could be removed.

Furious drivers across Moscow have now reportedly bombarded the agency with compensation claims.

A spokesman for the Sarafan Advertising Agency, which organised the promotion said:

We are planning to bring a new advertising format onto the market, encouraging companies to place their ads on the sides of trucks. We wanted to draw attention to this new format with this campaign.

In all cases of accidents, the car owners will receive compensation costs from us that aren't covered by their insurance.

  Travel Insurance Invalid for Pattaya?...

Travel insurers trying to avoid paying claims when claimant has had a couple of drinks

financial ombudsman logo Holidaymakers who have an accident or fall ill while on holiday risk having their travel insurance claim turned down if they have had just two alcoholic drinks.

The Financial Ombudsman Service, which adjudicates on consumer complaints, has warned that insurers are increasingly accusing customers of alcohol abuse in order to wriggle out of paying claims.

It has disclosed the details of cases to highlight the issue. In one, the insurer insisted that a customer suffered from alcoholism even when medical evidence showed that they had consumed no more than two alcoholic drinks.

The ombudsman has reported a rise in complaints over insurers using alcohol consumption as an excuse to avoid paying. A spokesman said:

We see cases where insurers have jumped to conclusions about what had happened -- for example, because of someone's age or the particular resort they were in.

In one case a woman on holiday in Croatia needed stitches after bumping her head on her bedside table. Her claim for medical costs was rejected because she was over the UK drink drive limit, roughly equivalent to two glasses of wine. The ombudsman said the excessive alcohol restriction in her policy was unclear and ordered the insurer to pay with interest added.

James Daly of campaigning website Fairer Finance said insurers were increasingly adding clauses that void the policy, some even on consumption of a moderate amount of alcohol.
