A club promoter found himself on the receiving end of a stern email from Avon, after he planned a tour and named it 'Yer Da Sells Avon'.
It goes without saying the promoter in question is Scottish.
For anybody not in the know 'yer da sells Avon' is, as Urban Dictionary puts it: "The peak, the maximum, the be-all and end-all of humiliation. The ultimate insult of one's self, one's family and one's dignity. Consider all hope lost in your life if this is said to you and use sparingly against enemies."
Check out the letter here...
The letter forbids the promoter from using the name, claiming it would be damaging to the company's brand image as it mocks 'the hardwork and dedication' of male Avon salesmen.
But talking to LADbible Paul Zitkus, from Glasgow, said he felt the women's makeup brand needed to liven up about his use of their brand-name for the tour, adding that the DJ is Gary Glitcher who made the hit song 'Yer Da Sells Avon' would be playing at the event.
He told us: "When I received the letter I just laughed because it's mental how it even reached them about our tour in Scotland.
"At the end of the day it's just all Scottish banter. Our events have been running for over 2 years now and we have sold out shows in Scotland, Ireland and Ibiza."

He said he remained committed to the design of the flyers as it currently stands, adding he 'technically wasn't using their logo' so he 'probably wouldn't be changing it'.
Finally he offered an olive branch to the company, saying: "I'm more than happy to guestlist any Avon representatives, male or female, to the events so they can experience the banter for themselves."
So I guess that means he's currently waiting on a second letter to hear if Avon reps will be taking him up on the offer.
