Violent Neo Sports bleeding toe cricket ad

With so much focus on bomb blasts and violence these days in India it is sad to see violent cricket encounter ads have begun propping up again on Neo Sports.

Neo Sports a cricket channel is too famous for glamorizing violence in its cricket ads have started airing the crushed toe ads for the upcoming India vs Australia 2008 October/November Test series :

Last Year, Not all of Brett Lee’s Yorkers hit the wicket.

It’s time to return the flavor.

Australia Tours India – Oct. 9 onwards

1st Test: Oct 9 (Bengaluru)
2nd Test: Oct 17 (Mohali)
3rd test : Oct 29 (Delhi)
4th test : Nov 6 (Nagpur)

Thanks to Cribb.in who posted this graphic image of the same and condemns their act.

The previous ad of India vs Australia series was much better with humor added to it. I feel to my heart that such ad “Hum Honge Kamyab” (we will Overcome Some Day) is what India needs during these troubled terrorist attacks and not something that brings back the bloodbath witnessed in recent incidents.

Here is the cricket ad (Hum Honge Kamyab) Neo Sports video:

The full lyrics of Hum Honge Kamyab in English & Hindi: (courtesy – Dinsan)

English
We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome some day

We’ll walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand some day

We shall all be free
We shall all be free
We shall all be free some day

We are not afraid
We are not afraid
We are not afraid some day

We are not alone
We are not alone
We are not alone some day

The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around some day

We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
