Pakistan Super League dances to the tune of Virgin Mobile's 2010 IPL ads

The films follow the same storyline and also sign off to the same tune. While these films haven't been released on digital, there's a film with a different storyline, but the same sign off tune on the official YouTube page of HBL, the title sponsors of the league (has been taken down now). According to social media commentary, the campaign has been conceptualised by JWT | Grey Pakistan. 
The agency is yet to respond to queries. 

This isn't the first time we're seeing this in advertising during the PSL.
