Bonkers website: Law firm in crazy golf video
06 July 2018
This week's bonkers firm has promoted its legal services by featuring an astronaut hitting a golf ball from the Moon to Earth.
On its website, Parisian-based firm, Fairway, says that "fairness
" is key for the firm:
Pushing the wordplay a bit more, the firm's website says that Fairway, achieves deals that are "fair"
And just in case you missed it, Fairway rams it home:
A marketing bod at the firm realised that there was more potential to the name, as Fairway can also refer to the main stretch of a golf course. So, naturally, the firm's website features a video of an astronaut hitting a golf ball from the Moon, through space, onto Earth and into Fairway's office, to represent, erm ... a golf "fairway" across the planets. And nothing to do with law. Cue video.
In a galaxy, fair, fair away:
A golf ball on the moon is teed up to face Earth:
An astronaut golfer defies physics, logic and Fairway's marketing budget, to hit the ball towards Earth:
The ball heads down the galactic fairway. That's one giant shot for mankind:
One of the disadvantages of space golf soon becomes apparent, as the ball hurtles towards a satellite in orbit:
The ball wipes out the satellite, causing it to burst into flames and giving Houston a problem. But the ball is still on track so, technically, it's a good shot:
The flaming ball penetrates the earth's atmosphere and heads towards Paris, as the satellite presumably crashes off screen wiping out an entire community in the suburbs:
The ball lands straight down the middle of a chimney. The satellite disaster is forgiven, as it seems the astronaut really managed a peach of a shot:
It rolls into an empty meeting room - seems that nobody back on Earth was that bothered:
Having made it across the planetary fairway - it's a hole in one as the ball slots into ... a laptop accessory.
The galaxy's most impressive golf shot of all time has enabled a PowerPoint display about Fairway to start on a projector to an empty meeting room. Sport has its anti-climatic moments:
