The Indian skipper Virat Kohli along with the young wicket-keeper batsman, Rishabh Pant signed up as official brand ambassadors of a company to promote its new line of face care products. Recently, the company released a commercial on social media featuring Kohli and Pant showing off their coolness. The advertisement released on Thursday in which both the cricketers were seen rapping about the benefits of the products.
In the start of the jingle, Kohli said, “Walking like a dude, feeling all cool, you’ve got the look, you’re gonna rule”. Kohli took to Twitter to share the new commercial with his fans on social media. Obviously, the ad was instantly seen by his millions of followers but it seems that they did not like it.
Here is the video of the same:

It is just one of many advertising projects Kohli has signed up to in recent weeks. Since the end of his Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign, he has been too busy shooting the commercials for the same.
Talking about the commercial, Kohli said, “I am very excited to be a part of Team Himalaya and be the ambassador for their Men’s Face Wash range. Himalaya is a trusted brand and one of my favorite brands too! I have been a patron of Himalaya products for a long time now. I look forward to a long association with Himalaya MEN!”
On the other hand, Pant said, “I am very happy to be associated with Himalaya. Himalaya has helped people lead happier and healthier lives for over 88 years, and I am proud to be the brand ambassador for the Men’s Grooming range of Himalaya. Youngsters like me are always looking for good products to fulfill our grooming needs, and Himalaya MEN provides the perfect solution for this. Looking forward to a fruitful association with Himalaya MEN!”
Virat will be leading the Indian Team in the upcoming ICC World Cup, scheduled to commence on May 30 in England and Wales.
