Watch: IAF pilot Abhinandan features in spoof of Pakistani tea advertisement

Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by Pakistan on February 27 and released on March 1, has now featured in a spoof of a Pakistani tea advertisement. While Varthaman was still in Pakistan’s custody, a video was released, in which the pilot was seen drinking a cup of tea, which he called “fantastic”. He: what’s ur name? #Abhinandan: #AbhinandanVarthaman He:u are from which place in India? Abhi: am frm down south india He: are u married? Abhi: yes He: how was the tea? Abhi:tea is fantastic He: which aircraft u fly? Abhi: am not supposed to tell u thatpic.twitter.com/rkrVwUgJU0 The footage has now been used in an edited version of an old advertisement for Tapal Tea, a Pakistani tea brand, based in Karachi. In the original advertisement, a woman spies on a young couple that is lovingly sipping tea in their balcony. The spoof video replaces the couple with Varthaman, and has gained immense popularity on Twitter, with many initially believing it to be an authentic ad. Tea for two, please. A #Pakistan brand brews it with a touch of love and humour. #Abhinandan features, of course. pic.twitter.com/NpGWeRQ56m Abhinandan is a favorite one in Pak and in our country people are asking for proof… Watch it… Tapal Tea is a Pakistani major tea brand based in Karachi, Pakistan. pic.twitter.com/xdM6E55kfJ Tapal Danedar is a major brand of tea marketed in Karachi, bhikaristan.
