Blog: Olly WehringCoors UK - so much to answer for

Olly Wehring | 28 February 2007

Skiving at work - it’s not the sort of thing I should really be discussing in this blog, so I’ll put this more diplomatically.

Whilst typing my fingers into stumps for the good of the global drinks industry today, my eye was caught by a pop-up telling me I had received an email from Grolsch. “How exciting,” I thought. And I was proved right in my exuberance, when I was invited to play a little game with what was called the “green Grolsch ball of energy”. A couple of attempts at this game made me realise that work-time was not the time to play games, so I put it to one side and continued churning out Pulitzer-winning journalism.

Thirty seconds later, another email - this time, Coors asking me if I’d like to have a go on its ice hockey game. “Alright,” I said. “Just a quick game.” A score of zero told me, again, that this would require a lot more practice later.

So if tomorrow’s just-drinks output is minimal and shaky, you can blame Coors UK - the owner of both Grolsch and Coors here in the UK - it has nothing to do with me.

Play with Grolsch, or give Coors a game.
