And you thought it was all a joke

Jokes have been made about Afridi and how his hair is eligible for shampoo commercials. We laughed at the thought of Afridi swishing his hair in slow motion while somebody speaks about the benefits of the shampolo. We were sure that it was a unique idea conjured by us non-cricketers and would never cross Afridi's mind. Why would it? He is too busy leading his T20 side. Yes, this is Afridi being a captain. If he can smell a cricket ball to see how it was feeling, why can't he shit all over the captaincy to see how it looks on him? He can and he will!

He can also actually make a shampoo commercial. He has time, he doesn't play tests anymore. And of course he thought of the whole thing! Writing, direction, editing- all done by the great man. Right down to the little girl with her 'I heart Afridi' t-shirt. If you buy them along with the shampoo, Afridi will come and bite your balls for free.

But on the commercial, it has to be shown as giving an autograph. Poor Afridi is forced to hide his mental problems with a sane idea because of lawsuits and other such bullshit. We live in rubbish times.

Buy the t-shirt and the shampoo, even if you don't have dandruff. Then wait for Afridi. He just needs a few minutes to sharpen his teeth.

The ad is great! I also like the voice. It is like Afridi 2.0, a muchly improved version.
