This anti-gambling ad warned about betting on Germany in the World Cup

You're about to be rich Andy!

The National Council on Problem Gambling meant well when they posted this awareness commercial just over a month ago and maybe they should have used a different team than Germany to illustrate its point.

A group of children sit in a park, discussing the World Cup in Brazil. Everyone has their opinion about who will win, basing it off their faith in different teams and support from their family, except Forlorn Andy. Forlorn Andy has bigger things on his mind, because Forlorn Andy's dad gambled his entire savings on Germany to win the World Cup.

Fast forward five weeks and Forlorn Andy is about to get a new Xbox. Gambling addiction isn't funny, but after Germany's 7-1 drubbing of Brazil this ad is.
