A lot of licking
UKTV made a brilliant promo-experiment, a life-size Benedict Cumberbatch sculpture of Belgium chocolate set up at a busy mall in London. This stunt was to see the people’s reaction to “chocobatch”; would they take a selfie, lick it or take a bite?

A nation where over twenty crore use the internet and few even bothered about saving it surely needed a wakeup call in a language they could relate to.

Game of chairs 2

Game of Chairs: Parody
With the return of season 5, Sesame Street’s Grover (Bluejoy) enacted a “Game of Chairs” to see who will rule the land of Jestros.
