What do we Indians like the most? Well, seeing a desi song play in a show which has an international audience pretty much does it for a lot of us. So, you can imagine what must’ve happened when Prateek Kuhad’s Cold Mess played in an episode of the show Ted Lasso.

Here’s how people responded once they recognised the track playing.

Just realised there’s THE Prateek Kuhad song in Ted Lasso and I want to throw up but I also don’t want to throw up cuz that’s the most synergistic union of tv and music that can be.— DoubleA (@aayush510r) October 3, 2021
Holy freaking shit , that’s Prateek Kuhad song “Wish I could leave you my love but my heart is a mess” playing in BG when Keeley and Roy was doing their photoshoot in #TedLasso , that’s so exciting @prateekkuhad so happy— Sanjukta 🐣 (@SANJUKTAKAR1) October 1, 2021
