Amul’s witty camping on on Ronaldo’s Coca-Cola snub is now a viral social media advertising campaign, reproted by The Mint. Two of the world’s best-known drinks brands have felt the viral ripples caused by simple gestures from Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba.
Attending a Euro 2020 post-match press conference, the Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo removed two bottles of Coca-Cola kept in front of him and asked people to drink water. Ronaldo has 299 million followers on Instagram alone.
R S Sodhi, MD at Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation(GCMMF) tweeted an ad with the Amul girl that said “Not bottling one feelings.”
