Arsenal’s defeat to Manchester City last week put the title race firmly in its opponent’s hands, so bookmaker Paddy Power captured the spirit of the Gunners’ bottling it in the only way it knew how – by delivering a giant bottle of plonk outside the Emirates Stadium.
The 18ft inflatable bottle of ‘brut-al’ champagne pokes fun at Arsenal’s surrendering of a commanding eight-point lead in the Premier League, joking that the title of ‘Biggest bottlers in North London’ may well sit with Mikel Arteta’s side…at least for now.
Fan reaction suggests that the Gunners have picked up the ‘Bottle Job’ mantle from its arch nemesis and cross-town rivals Tottenham Hotspur, with the not-so-flattering term linked with Spurs for…well, ever?
The giant installation stood at almost 5.5m high – that’s the equivalent height of 27 cans of Arteta’s hairspray.
The well-known Irish bookmaker also buddied up with leading brewers BrewDog to create a limited edition run of beer, launching bespoke bottles of IPA (It’s Proper Arsenal).
