Tea breaks in offices seldom end without a dig about the endless work and jokes about your bosses. The ad’s humorous take on the workplace banter through memes is earning a lot of laughter. 

The ad follows two employees making fun of their boss behind his back. When they see him coming, they switch back to a different photo on their phone. Without delving deep into the technical aspects, the ad delivers a concise messaging highlighting the benefits of the feature.
