Any India vs Pakistan match is a big deal. The nation gets glued to television screens and devours every innings of the match with attention. It is also a good time for brands to jump on the bandwagon and capture the moment to advertise their products in a way so that it goes viral. Recently, a travel giant put out an ad during the India vs Pakistan World Cup match which was distasteful.

But apart from that, there were brands that delivered their ads tastefully and celebrated the occasion without bringing the other team down. Let’s take a look at those five ads.

1. Cleartrip

True sportsmanship lies in congratulating your opponent for their efforts even when you win the game. It also lies in not celebrating their loss with jingoism and using words that can incite. Cleartrip’s ad hits the bulls eye.
