Recently, the nagging problem of open defecation in Ahmedabad caught the eye of UNICEF. This social issue, due to poverty and space issues resulted in UNICEF making a ridiculous disco themed public service video called ‘Take the poo to the loo’.
Jimmy Kimmel , famous host of the night show ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, decided to unapologetically take the piss (pun intended) out of this, so the Kimmel crew made their own little service video, aptly titled ‘Poopies for Rupees’. Suffice to say, some people got offended. Watch it below.
Here’s what the Twitterati had to say.
