This quirky campaign of Puma was to highlight the fact that everything can be faked, but Puma’s Black Friday Sale deals are as genuine as they come.

This week, the sports brand PUMA India introduced its spectacular Black Friday Sale Campaign. In this popular sale day event, the brand created quirky marketing to match the deals. In addition to hiring doppelgangers of their prominent brand ambassadors, PUMA produced fake pop-ups with tweaked branding outside a few of its precise locations. Furthermore, it gave its official website,, a fake appearance.

This move was part of a strategy to emphasize that, while everything can be mimicked but the Black Friday deals are as genuine as they come.

For creating a fake appearance of the website they modified the brand logo. Additionally, substituted the pictures of ambassadors Virat Kohli, Mary Kom, Yuvraj Singh, and Sunil Chhetri with pictures of their look-alikes. And it was very shocking for the social media users.

Some Instagram users commented on their social media profiles about their confusion and reactions to the errors they had spotted on the shopping website, which led to the discovery of this attempted cyberattack.

How netizens reacted?

Netizens responded with questions like “Website down @pumaindia”; “So many errors???? All good @pumaindia”; and “@pumaindia What is Going On?” expressing their worry and uncertainty. It was really a very nice move to attract the attention of the audience.

Puma set up doppelgangers of Virat Kohli, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sunil Chhetri, and Yuvraj Singh in specific stores in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, and Gurugram, respectively, as part of this quirky campaign to stimulate consumers’ interest.
