PayTM to Bisleri: How brands are cashing in on Ronaldo’s Coca-Cola snub at Euro 2020 Update with guwahati assam

by Guwahati_City


There have been plenty of reactions on social media since Cristiano Ronaldo removed two Coca-Cola bottles from a table at a press conference following a Euro Cup match, asking all to “drink water” instead. As memes and spoofs took over social media, brands too joined the bandwagon to cash in on the trend.

After netizens dubbed Fevicol as the clear winner in the Ronaldo-Coca-cola fiasco after the adhesive brand’s cheeky take went viral, many other memes are also getting a lot of attention online.

While some won the internet by making an indirect reference, others weren’t shy of getting the 36-year-old Portuguese star involved. Like the one put forward by leading mobile payment app PayTM, which, taking a cue from the Fevicol ad, used the footballer’s image from the press conference and added the company’s QR Code stand, suggesting the ace footballer is at a nimbu pani stall.

However, it wasn’t just PayTM who got inspired. Other brands like Dabur, Parle, ITC and even wellness brands like Manforce, utilised this moment to join the conversation using puns.

Here are some of the popular brand post doing round on the internet.

After Ronaldo’s gesture, Euro 2020 found itself embroiled in a ‘bottle gate’ as many more players followed his lead and removed bottles of sponsors. While Italy’s Manuel Locatelli removed Coco Cola bottles just like Ronaldo, French footballer Paul Pogba removed a Heineken beer bottle during his press conference.
