Anand Mahindra engages and entertains his Twitter followers with amusing videos, photos, memes, and witty captions. His profile is one that consistently produces viral gems.
Aside from the amusing tweets, Mahindra Group’s Chairman also promotes talents and small businesses and shares information on innovation and technology.
This week, he brought some levity to the cheap replica industry, which produces low-cost, tweaked versions of popular brands’ products.
Popular shoe replicas have similar logos and names. Minor changes make them even more appealing to foreigners.
You may have seen a PAMA t-shirt, Rubok pants, SATSANG phone, or Tomex watch.
When Mahindra came across Adidas’ brother ‘Ajitdas’, he shared it with his followers on Twitter. The industrialist tweeted: “Completely logical. It just means that Adi has a brother called Ajit. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam?”
Mahindra posted a picture of a white running shoe with Adidas stripes. However, the brand’s name is written as ‘Ajitdas.’ Since it was posted, the amusing image has received over 8,000 likes and 500 retweets.
A user wrote, “It shows that Adidas unable to complete Indian shoes requirement in affordable price”
“Reebok also has Reecok..I purchased one and got to know after reaching back to my home..” wrote another.
“I have seen various renditions of this brand, but #AjitDas is on a whole new level. Tweets like this make me miss additional reaction emojis that Twitter doesn’t support… Such as the smiley, or laugh out loud etc… Good one,” wrote a third user.
