A few years ago, the ‘Mauka-Mauka’ ad had taken social media by storm. This promo was released prior to the ICC World Cup 2015. The promo showed a Pakistan fan waiting to celebrate a victory over India in a world cup match.
It was a super hit as people loved the promo, and it soon became one of the greatest cricketing promos of all time.
Now, STAR has released a new promo for the upcoming India-Pakistan match in the ICC Champions Trophy.
The video shows a young businessman, who gives up all his wealth in order to attain salvation. He climbs a mountain and finds a group of priests, who agree to take him in. But just before he shaved off his hair, he noticed a newspaper advertisement which reads, India v Pakistan on June 4.
After seeing this, he jumps off his chair and runs back to the world!
While not as brilliant as the ‘Mauka-Mauka’ promo, this one is humorous none the less. The tagline of this promo is, #SabseBadaMoh and is line with the #ChampionskaWorldCup campaign for ICC Champions Trophy.
