Good for a laugh - Got to say it beats a free toaster right!

I have to say, with all the controversy, changes in our regulatory environment, foreclosures, scams, healthcare debate, TARP, bank failures and bailouts we have going on here in the USA it is good to see someone can pull a good old One up ya on us.

From a post on ABCnews.com

Banks Offer Free Strip Show to Irish Students

One of Ireland's top banks has been forced to pull a promotion which gave students free tickets to an afternoon strip show.

Ulster Bank in Ireland said it yanked a promotion after learning it allowed college students to attend a strip show.

Freshmen at a Dublin college signed up in their droves in the promotion which gave them strip show tickets and €100 ($145) in return for opening an account at Ulster Bank.

Horrified mom Suzanne Keegan said her 18-year-old son was among the freshmen who had "booted it over to the bar" to see the 'exotic dancers."

Keegan said the banks -- which are currrently public enemy number one in Ireland -- had sunk to a new low.

"The banks have got very low. But this is just immoral," she said.

The Ulster Bank said it had not realized the promotion would involve strippers.

Obviously someone (who is probably now unemployed) did not do their due diligence.

Now that's creative marketing, cater to a select clientele. Stupid but effective?

Creative for sure, certainly not the best business partnership to pursue though.

Hi, I was the mom that broke that story,  I emailed our national radio station ,  I didn't think it would get the huge response that it did.
