The new PSL ads are getting talked about for all the wrong reasons
So, Pakistan Super League is just around the corner and cricket fans all over the country can’t wait for the series to start already. The release of a “controversial” PSL anthem has already grabbed audience’s attention and now the PSL ads that a sponsor came up with are being called into question.
These new PSL Ads have recently been broadcast to hype up the rivalry between all the playing teams
Unfortunately, the audience have noticed something rather embarrassing about these ads.
Soon after the release of these new PSL ads, the audience promptly pointed out that the content of the ads was copied from old Indian ads
Naturally, there were folks who began pointing out the sheer lack of creativity and the level of fucks being given by the people behind these ads to go ahead and simply plagiarize the idea of none other than perpetual arch-rivals, India.
A lot of people mentioned that this is pretty embarrassing for all as a leading event like the PSL being connected to such sheer stupidity is unfathomable
These #psl ads are embarrassing.
I am angry and sad at how conveniently the ad agency has destroyed our national product. @HBLPak will there be any accountability of the concerned team and agency?@DrNaumanNiaz @iRashidLatif68 @mak_asif @iNabeelHashmi#PSL2020 #TayyarHain pic.twitter.com/Y4ykl58tBi

Fans also talked about the fact that the folks for these PSL ads were so lazy that the dialogues from the Indian ads weren’t even tweaked slightly
Just saw that the HBL ads for PSL are copy pasted from Indian ads. Didn’t even change the dialogues slightly. Who takes these decisions?

A few suggested that spending time and money on innovative ideas could have easily avoided this depressing and embarrassing situation
Have you seen the advertisements? Do you think that the PSL ads are a copy of the Indian ads or is this an exaggeration from some angry fans? Let us know in the comments below.
