Budget airline Kulula were told recently that by FIFA to pull a series of ads that proclaimed Kulula the ‘Unofficial Carrier of the ‘You Know What’ as they infringed on too many trademarks that were pertinent to this summer’s World Cup.

The Advert in question – see a larger version by clicking on it
The advert goes very close to the bone with several images, including some golf tees that look strikingly similar to the famous Vuvuzela, but we’re assured by the text in blue that they’re ‘Deinitely, definitely a golf tee’, and those shoes that look like football boots? ‘No, they’re running shoes’ according to the ad.
