People who grew up in India during the '80s and '90s will love this challenge. A picture that is currently going viral online has iconic Indian ads hidden throughout - and people are encouraged to find all of them. From (spoiler alert!) the famous Amul girl to Dhara's jalebi boy, Indians will find many familiar faces while scanning the lovely picture, which was created for an event called ZeeMelt. The painting features scenes and characters from 40 Indian ads.
The image first went viral on Twitter after it was shared by a user. It garnered thousands of 'likes' on Twitter as many tried to guess all the ads.
Take a look, but be warned that it may make you nostalgic:
This painting has 40 best Indian ads hidden, including all the classics. Lovely little trip for the nostalgia lovers. Have fun. And reward yourself with some jalebis when done.

While many on the microblogging website tried to guess which ads were featured in the picture, others applauded the artists who created it. One user, while revealing all the 40 ads in the painting, also credited its artists:
