Amir and Afridi’s 4G TVC Becomes a Big Success

Boxer Amir “King” Khan and Pakistan National T20 captain Shahid Afridi recently featured together in a commercial for Warid Telecom’s new Double Faida Campaign.

Promoting Warid’s “Lightning Tez Internet”, 4G LTE, the two Warid brand ambassadors featured together for the first time in a tv commercial. The Double Faida Offer grants access to free internet at blazing speed from 1 am to 9 pm, along with double the volume of mobile data on selected LTE bundles at their original price.

In another digital promotion for the campaign, a young fan while taking an autograph from Shahid Afridi, asked him the difference between 2G, 3G, and LTE. Afridi responded with an interesting analogy. He compared 2G internet to a test cricket match, where players play all day, without any result. 3G is more like a one-day match, while Warid LTE is like a T20 match and like Afridi’s signature “Boom Boom” batting style: aggressive and fast. Prior to this, Afridi (as a Warid brand ambassador) also performed in Warid’s 4G launch campaign earlier this year.

Warid 4G LTE currently the highest number of 4G subscribers in Pakistan.

During the shoot of this latest commercial, Afridi and Amir Khan were asked a few questions. Here is what they said:


  • Afridi & Amir boyh always travel in Business class. & in business class there is two seats togather. Plz tell me a plane where there are three seats in row in business class.
    3 seats in row are in economy class.Can you imagine that Afridi & Amir will travel
    in economy class.

    • Dear Kamwali,

      Good point but you know the dinosaurs dont exisit but in Jurrasic world so its a TVC and a good one :) LOL but your observation is really interesting

  • Warid’s LTe speed has begun to slowdown a lot lately. In the beginning, I used to get around 10-14 Mbps in our area, but now I barely get even 2Mbps. They definitely ate more than they can chew.
