Election disrupted by wedding gown…huh?
The government will ask Andreas Efstratiou to fork out at least $20,000 to cover reprinting costs.
Guinness had initially permitted Efstratiou to use the logo in his first presidential run in 2008. Efstratiou, who runs a bridalwear shop, earned a Guinness Book of World Records entry for creating the longest wedding gown train (4,468 feet) in 2007.
But Guinness told Efstratiou to stop using the logo in 2011. They complained to Cypriot authorities when it recently found out that he had used it again.
Critical thinking challenge: Why did Andreas Efstratiou include the Guinness logo on the election ballot? How does he benefit from using the logo?
