Airtel 4G – India

Omg! What the f**k is the problem with Airtel. Why would they cast such an ANNOYING model to promote their ad.

First they got her to tell everyone what airtel 4G does…..then they got her to meddle among people and challenge them ‘who can download faster’….. then she started talking up at random places on the PA systems and TELLING everyone about airtel 4G….. and now she is yapping about duniya(world) being gol(round) and not 4G….jo…..gol….nahi….hai….
