Murphy's Using Error Pages for Beer Marketing

Share this article:
Murphy's, a corporate brand of Amsterdam-based Heineken, said Friday it will use Internet error pages as advertising space. When an Internet surfer gets an error message for typing in a wrong address on Planet Internet in the Netherlands they will see a Murphy's Law error page instead of the standard error message. Visitors who click through to Murphy's site will be rewarded with a pint of Murphy's Irish Stout or Murphy's Irish Red.


Murphy's said it believes it is the first company to use the common error page for marketing purposes.
