After Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo chose water over Coca-Cola at a press conference at the Euro 2020, netizens find the incident a great opportunity for a new meme fest.
Ronaldo picked up two bottles of Coca-Cola placed on the table and set them aside. He then held up a bottle of water and said: “agua” (Portuguese for water), indicating that people should drink water instead of soft drinks.
This action of the footballer also saw the market value of the beverage brand reportedly drop by a mammoth $4 billion. This market value decline has now moved to the internet with some hilarious memes trending on Twitter.
While some Twitterati trolled Coca-Cola’s plunging stock prices, others made Amrita Rao’s epic meme in the recent times – ‘Jal Lijiye’ go global. The actor also responded to the memes on twitter with a pun: Wat’er Are U Saying !!!

While the incident didn’t just give many a reason to laugh but also gave companies like Fevicol to get their creative skills at work. The company took to Twitter to replicate the press conference with an image showing an empty chair with two jars of their ‘mazboot jod’ Fevicol on the table with a caption: Na bottle hategi, na valuation ghategi (The bottles won’t move and the valuation won’t fall)”. This perfect idea of advertising took netizens in splits.
