Wasim Akram, the legendary cricketer also known as “King of Swing” has left Mobilink to join Ufone as its brand ambassador.
Once the brand ambassador for Mobilink, Wasim Akram appeared in a Ufone TVC that was aired yesterday.
Ufone showed Akram playing with a ball in a prison cell (replicating Tom cruise’s scene in Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and then breaking the jail (in Shawshank Redemption manner) to eventually run after the car filled with Ufone guys.
This was probably the best shot Ufone could play for a MNP ad.
On a side note - the phrase: Jaisa Karo Gay Waisa Bharo Gay fits well here. As Mobilink had snatched Ali Zafar from Telenor, and now Ufone did the same with Mobilink. This trend may trigger a new race of snatching brand ambassadors from other operators.
