I am not a fan of Acer laptops (see here and here) although I own one — unfortunately. I couldn’t help but find and publish this advertisement featuring Hrithik Roshan singing praises about Acer products.



It’s glaringly obvious that Hrithik Roshan has never booted up an Acer laptop in his life. He wouldn’t be singing “Life is busy. Acer makes it easy,” if he had. Watch the advertisement carefully: Hrithik Roshan doesn’t even touch the Acer laptop once. He respectfully maintains his distance from the thingamajig.

Bad luck mate! I understand how you must be feeling.

Hrithik must have been forced into it, he was probably stopped mid-way going to the loo and was asked to do this ad, his expression says it all.
