Company Confuses Chris Smalling With President Obama On World Cup Mug
via Yahoo News
It’s been a forgettable World Cup for England on the pitch. Off the pitch, one company is having a forgettable few days as well, as they had hoped to cash in on a successful tournament for The Three Lions, as the Sunday Express notes.
Among the English World Cup merchandise an unnamed British company had created featuring the likenesses of the English soccer team were a set of mugs that included one glaring error. You could purchase a Steven Gerrard or Joe Hart or Wayne Rooney, among others, but if you’re a big Chris Smalling fan, you might notice something a tad off about his appearance.
U.S. President Barack Obama does not play center back for Manchester United or the English national team.
Realizing its mistake, the company turned to online re-seller Wholesale Clearance UK to dump the error-filled inventory.
