Advertisements are a great way to attract customers and there are few companies such as CRED which are known for coming up with great commercials. Based in Bengaluru, CRED is an Indian fintech company and the main feature of its app is that it rewards users for their timely credit card payments. Later on, it also started enabling its users pay house rents and has introduced credit lines too, though only short term as of now.
CRED’s advertisement which featured the former Indian cricketer and current head coach of the Indian cricket team, Rahul Dravid was an instant hit among the audiences. In that ad, Rahul Dravid who is known for his calm and cool attitude acted as a rowdy who was behaving viol*ntly with everyone. The recent ad of CRED which featured actor Annu Kapoor and actress Renuka Shahane is also going viral at the moment. In this ad, both the celebrities are acting as the hosts of Antakshari which was a hit show of the 90s and it won’t be wrong to say that this ad has recreated the magic of Antakshari once again.
Here is the ad, if you haven’t watched it so far:
