Virat Kohli just appeared in an anti-acne facewash commercial and its a whole new level of tacky.
While Pakistani artists are embracing their acne after Hania Amir came forth, India needs to do better.
Acne is natural and cleaning your skin properly can help. However, this Himalaya Men’s ad featuring Virat Kohli is the wrong way to go about preaching that.
Lets take a look at this absolutely epic fail of a commercial:
Watch me and @RishabPant777 team up with @HimalayaMEN to take care of the one problem that keeps coming back. PIMPLES! #HimalayaMenPimplesGottaGo #LookingGoodAndLovingIt #VIRATxRISHABH pic.twitter.com/Pj4qetiOX1

Yes ‘Pimples Gotta Go’ …… but this tacky ad’s gotta go too!
The jingle lacks rhythm and melody. Even the lyrics are tacky. The focus on style over healthy skin is wrong. Its no rocket science that all these elements are making people swear off the ad.
Geez, who makes a song on acne? Acne is not something to be sung.

Some people are going as far as to call this the worse thing they’ve seen today!

Hahah how do these guys sign up to do shit like this is beyond me ?

Is that shade at the brand or the brand ambassadors?

Uh-ohh is that subtly projected ‘Gora complex’ !?
Rishabh Pant's skin changing shades in Virat Kohli's godawful Himalaya Men commercial says everything about India's sad obsession with fair skin. pic.twitter.com/j5j2uEPGTU
