The video shows the brand's first-ever FIFA-related topical created in the 1986 Football World Cup. Amul also paid tribute to legendary football player Diego Maradona, who played for the winning Argentina national football team.
Over the years, the brand has created unique doodles on trending topics from across the world. Be it on Virat Kohli's outstanding performance at the ongoing T20 World Cup or Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan's 80th birthday. The brand also poked fun at the French midfielder, Zinedine Zidane. The player was given a red card for headbutting the Italian defender Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup match in Germany. In 2010, the brand made a topical on singer Shakira's Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).
