Tom Waterhouse responds to Christmas photo fury during betting app promotion

Polarising bookmaker Tom Waterhouse has explained the thought process behind some of his recent bizarre social media activity.

The 38-year-old has been promoting his recent betting app with some truly strange photos, videos and Twitter retweets – confusing plenty of punters in the process.

His latest campaign kicked off on Christmas eve when the son of racing royalty Gai and Robbie Waterhouse shared an image of himself drinking an Up&Go on a farm alongside a few models.

On Christmas Day things got even weirder with an image of himself and a group of bikini-clad models holding goats.

Waterhouse’s campaign has continued over recent days with a series of strange videos that all seem to involving him having a laugh at his own expense.

The bookmaker has also bizarrely been retweeting negative opinions from his followers on social media.

These retweets include a follower calling him, “the old trust fund baby,” and “King Creep”.

He also shared a message that called his activity, “probably the strangest marketing I’ve ever seen in my time.”

Now, Waterhouse has responded to the furore surrounding his campaign, saying he’s simply trying to “do something different”.

“We’re just trying to mix things up a bit, it’s a pun on a joke … taking the p**s,” Waterhouse told SMH.

AMA make SCG Test plea

Meanwhile the NSW government continues to roll out a range of restrictions in response to rising coronavirus cases in Sydney, with masks to become mandatory for many indoor settings.

Outdoor seated events are now capped at 2000 people, although NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says COVID-safe plans for larger events will be reviewed.

NSW Health officials will do a “walk through” at the SCG before rubber stamping plans for the third Test, which currently permit a daily crowd of approximately 20,000.
