June 18 (IndiaToday) – Star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo found himself in the limelight after he pushed aside two bottles of Coca-Cola during a pre-match press conference earlier this week.
Now, Fevicol has used this episode to create a hilarious ad-based meme and the picture, needless to mention, has gone viral on social media. During a pre-match press conference ahead of the Euro 2020 clash between Portugal and Hungary, Ronaldo spotted two Coke bottles kept in front of him on the table and moved them aside, and instead, displayed a water bottle in front of the press.
Hours after Ronaldo’s act, Coca-Cola, one of the official sponsors of Euro 2020, witnessed a dip in its market value by a whopping $4 billion.
Fevicol, in the meantime, recreated the scenario from the press conference, except for the fact that the chair was left vacant and two bottles of the adhesive were kept on the table instead of Coca-Cola.
“Na bottle hategi, na valuation ghategi (Neither will the bottles move, nor will the valuation dip),” the caption on the graphic reads.

With around 20,000 likes and 4,000 retweets, Fevicol’s meme has gone viral on social media.
After Ronaldo’s act, Coca-Cola’s stock price dropped over 1 per cent and the market value of the beverage brand dipped $4 billion from $242 to $238 billion.
Coca-Cola, in fact, also issued a statement after the incident and said, “Players are offered water, alongside Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, on arrival at our press conferences. Everyone is entitled to their drink preferences. Everyone has different tastes and needs.”
