The latest communication is set at a proverbial neighbourhood shop - ‘Milne Ka Adda’ (hang out place), a place where people once used to get together to support their favourite cricket team, has now lost its attraction.

What follows next is how Gautam Gambhir with the help of Cricket and Coca-Cola gathers strangers from all walks of life to experience the sheer joy of coming together and sharing their happiness. The entire shop is filled with people cheering for their favourite cricket team while drinking Coca-Cola in a matter of a few minutes.

Said Ashish Chakravarty, executive creative director, McCann Erickson, “Just like cricket, Coca-Cola also has the power to bring perfect strangers together and make them 'dosts' or friends. ‘Open happiness’ is really an invite this summer to do exactly the same. Open a chilled bottle of Coca-Cola, share and enjoy it with friends.”
