Amul always manages to get it right when it comes to making sensible yet touching advertisements and its latest ad celebrating Joker film ay Oscars is yet another example. There were many predictable as well as unpredictable wins and applause at the ceremony. However, one thing that almost everyone was positive about was a trophy to Joker actor Joaquin Phoenix. His performance in the film is worthy of the awards.
Amul paid a tribute with a cute doodle where we can see the Amul girl offering butter to the star of the show in his costume from the film, and the Oscars in one hand. The text has words like ‘JOAQER’ and ‘Amul Have On a Renee Day;’ with all puns intended! Check out the latest cartoon here.
The actor gave a powerful speech when he accepted the best actor award at Oscars. A teary-eyed Joaquin Phoenix got up on the stage and said, “I’m full of so much gratitude right now. I do not feel elevated above any of my fellow nominees or anyone in this room, because we share the same love that’s the love of film. And this form of expression has given me the most extraordinary life. I don’t know where I’d be without it.”
