Virat Kohli has always been a favourite with brands. He has over 25 million followers on Instagram and over 27 million followers on Twitter. His combined social media reach is a goldmine for any brand!
On 7 November, while promoting his own app, he said something-during an interview- that riled up his fans on social media. He said that people who don’t like Indian batsmen should leave the country.
He later apologized and tweeted:
I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled! ?— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) November 8, 2018
I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all. I’m all for freedom of choice. ? Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all. ✌?
Twitter was quick to get on this and outrage.
However, a parody Twitter account of his came up with a twist and started tweeting out seemingly run-of-the-mill activities (of his) in the language of a brand endorser!
Here’s taking a look.
(P.S: They are hilariously (un)real.)

Thanx to #Bosch Infrared CCTV Cameras and @iBallIndia Spy Microphone. With their high quality images and sound I was able to capture and record wifey's surprise bday party plan for me and thus asked BCCI to give me rest for @Paytm #INDvWI T20 series, so we can enjoy together. pic.twitter.com/IbgrKn4YQe— Virat Kohli (@imVlkohli) November 4, 2018
