The TVC shows the non-stop rap like fan chatter box done by normal people shot at random everyday locations, most probably where people see cricket, and features plenty of vibrant expressions and famous people or cultural references symbolising the spirit of India as a whole during IPL.

The lyrics of the theme song is :

( Hello Uncle…Kab tak kheencchoge?…

Ham toh kheench lengey, tumaha waala…khel paaayega? ) pointing towards Dhoni’s picture!

Ek taraf shuru na hua kirket ka khel

Aur yaha shuru bol bakar jhol jhakar

Hamara toh ‘meme’ ban gaya! ( Followed by IPL TUNE )

Bakar Bakar Bak Bak Bakar

Sharma ji ka beta, seekho use!….Har saal first aata hai…har saal trophy..
