A popular Cadbury ad is making headlines yet again, and all for the right reasons. The iconic Cadbury ad from the 1990s involving a cricket match in which a woman sitting in the stands during a cricket match enjoying a chocolate bar and rooting for the batsman playing on the field.
The chocolate company has recreated the ad giving a twist to the iconic one.
The 2021 remake features a girl hitting the winning run and a man cheering for her. More than a quarter of a century later after the original ad aired, this time, a women’s cricket match is in progress that’s being observed by a man on the stands, while munching on Dairy Milk. When his girlfriend scores the winning six, he breaks into a celebratory dance similar to the original ad and rushes onto the field to hug her.
â€œJoin Cadbury Dairy Milk in celebrating and cheering for our girls who are making spectacular success stories and emerging as powerful role models for the youth,â€ they wrote while sharing the video. In a country where cricket is loved by all age group the advertisement marks a shift in the popular perception of this game. The ad also shows that one can enjoy a sport, irrespective of the gender of the sportsperson.
