Javagal Srinath, Venkatesh Prasad, Maninder Singh and Saba Karim, popular names in the 90s and regular faces during the time in the Indian cricket team, featured in a CRED advertisement with all whites, together as a boy band, and showed the genZ viewers that they were once the “OGs”.
If you ever thought that you would only see these cricketers in all whites while playing a Test match but in a music boy band, think again. Because this advertisement CRED shows exactly that. The four cricketers, Prasad, Srinath, Karim and Maninder are seen in whites singing a song with lyrics that says, “If you are one of those genZ, you might not know me, just go and ask your daddy, don’t forget us because of T20s, don’t baby, in the 90s, we were the OGs, on your CRTs. We were the OGs, chasing big runs, beating the Aussies, bowling long spells in Sharjah ki garmie, we were the hotties, ask your phuphaji, who were the OGs, it was us”.
