The unlikely couple were placed front and centre of a ‘naughty’ advert/publicity stunt for the Irish betting giant, although the love wasn’t shared by the British press who refused to publish the campaign.
In a statement Paddy Power said: “This week we attempted to run an advert offer on the Conservative-DUP alliance to not survive 2017. And sadly it went almost as bad as Theresa May’s election campaign, after getting the heave-ho by not one, not two, but all of the British newspapers.”
The eye-catching piece advertised current odds on the shaky DUP-Conservativealliance clinging onto power for the duration of the year, while also poking fun at the DUP leaders hardline stance on gay marriage.
Paddy power believe there is just a 3/1 (25% chance) of the alliance holding through to 2018.
Paddy Power's penchant for mischief-making recently saw it track down Portugese sculptor Emanuel Santos, responsible for a widely derided bust of Cristiano Ronaldo, to follow up his effort with a likeness of Gareth Bale.
