Poland has always seemed like a grim sort of place and this is
confirmed by a recent event which celebrated, believe it or not, the
shooting of police officers.
A couple of Polish rozzers cheated death thanks to some bulletproof
vests they were wearing. So DuPont, which makes the vest material, asked
Warsaw-based First PR to organise a party to mark the narrow escape.
This involved organising a big shindig in Warsaw for the 2,000 worldwide
members of the Kevlar Survivors Club. Just in case you don’t know, the
Kevlar club is very exclusive - you only get to join if your life has
been saved by a bullet proof jacket.
We can only speculate as to what the Kevlar Survivors get up to at these
international bashes. Hopefully reconstructions of blazing shoot-outs
and foiled murder attempts are on the festival agenda.
Piotr Czarnowski, managing director of First PR, says: ’The
International Police Federation sponsored the event because of the lives
that had been saved’
Having organised this vest-fest Czarnowski is now turning his attentions
to Polish Playboy’s fifth anniversary. Hugh Hefner’s daughter Christine
is jetting in from the States and a large press conference is
Gun fights and naked women all in one month. It’s a great deal more
enticing than privatising run-down utilities.
