A kiwi energy drink company is currently running a promotion where you can win prizes when you send in pictures of their brand/product in the most outrageous or humourous situations. Click on the logo to check out the website but please be warned that 1) there are bikini clad girls* and 2) a local rock band comes on loud if your volume is up.
A few kiwi soldier boys on a tour of duty in Afghanistan have gotten themselves in hot water over a pic they submitted as part of the competition.
It’s hard to read but around the Demon sticker it says “Dear Taleban, suck on this”.
Defence Force spokesman Commander Shaun Fogarty said the photographs were "completely inappropriate" and an investigation was under way to determine the soldiers' fate.
*I will admit to scrolling through the pics of the hot young things on the website and was very surprised to see one of the ‘Demon girls of the month’ is none other than the daughter of one of my good friends. I’m not sure that she’ll be aware of this development. Perhaps that’ll be a story for another day.
