Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant get majorly trolled for rapping in new ad
Kohli shares his new advertisement pairing with Rishabh Pant with fans on Twitter; the reaction was not quite positive
Indian captain Virat Kohli and batsman Rishabh Pant recently signed up as official brand ambassadors of a wellness company in order to promote their latest line of products.
The wellness company released a new advertisement which had Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant displaying their rapping skills. First off Virat Kohli goes, "Walking like a dude, feeling all cool, you've got the look, you're gonna rule." This is before he asks Rishabh Pant, "hey man all set for tonight?" Rishabh Pant then enters with his rap that goes, "Paint the town red, 'cos Virat says so.. Virat then intervenes and raps to Pant, "But before you go out, dear bro, that pimple's got to go."
Virat Kohli took to social networking website Twitter in order to share the new ad with his cricket fans. After millions of his die-hard fans saw the ad, they obviously did not find it 'cool'.
