Portugal star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t a fan of carbonated soft drinks and he made that evident after he removed two bottles of Coca-Cola kept in front of him at Monday’s Euro 2020 press conference, encouraging people to drink water instead. The 36-year-old moved the cola bottles aside as he sat down to speak to the media before Tuesday’s Group F opener against Hungary. He followed it by holding a bottle of water before shouting in Portuguese: ‘Agua!’
Cristiano’s move sparked a meme-fest on Twitter. Meanwhile, the beverage giant’s shares dipped 1.6% on Monday, wiping off about $4 billion from the company’s market capitalization.
And while Twitterati has been enjoying some hilarious memes following Ronaldo’s epic snub of the beverage giant, now, there has been an addition to it and you can’t not know about it.
Remember the famous ‘Jal Lijiye’ dialogue from Shahid Kapoor-Amrita Rao starrer ‘Vivah’, which became meme fodder for netizens? Well, a Twitter user has combined it with Cristiano Ronaldo’s gesture to come up with a new meme and it’s epic!
In fact, the meme is so on-point, it got a reaction from Amrita Rao herself. “Wat’er Are U Saying !!!,” Amrita wrote quote-tweeting the meme. She followed it up with a face with its tongue sticking out and a cup with straw emojis.
