As the #pawrihorahihai fever grips social media, brands decided to cash in with some fun posts

Turns out there is a ‘pawri’ happening on social media and everyone wants to be part of it! As the #pawrihorahihai fever grips social media, brands like Dominos, Swiggy, Zomato, State Bank of India (SBI), Oyo, and Netflix decided to cash in with some fun posts.

To promote its 50 per cent discount offer, Dominos took to Instagram and posted, “Don’t forget to order your favourite sides for the Dominos Pizza Party and get up to 50% off on all orders. #PawriHoRahiHai.”

Food delivery apps Swiggy and Zomato also decided to have some fun with this trend as a perfect valentine’s day plan doesn’t exist.

India’s largest public-sector lender State Bank of India also jumped on the bandwagon and promote the offers on its online banking app, SBI YONO in a tweet. SBI tweeted, “Aise offers ho to pawwrty toh banti hai. #YONOSBI #PawriHoRiHai”

Oyo Rooms asked everyone to join the ‘pawri’ on Instagram with the caption, “Pawri kar lo guys! #PawriHoRahiHai #ValentinesDay #YeRishtaHaiKhiska #MomentMarketing #Trending.”

Online streaming giant Netflix could not keep away either and tweeted, “Watching something with your friends X Netflix pawri ho rahi hai, tick emoji.”

These were, however, not the only ones to encash the pawri trend as the central government’s press division-Press Information Bureau (PIB) and Uttar Pradesh Police also jumped in. In a recent tweet, PIB utilised the pawri trend to talk about its efforts at tackling fake news.

Uttar Pradesh Police warned people about late-night parties using the #PawriHoRahiHai trend and tweeted, “Late night #PawriHoRahiHai aur aap disturb ho rahe toh call karein 112.”

How did #PawriHoRahiHai become a top social media trend?

A Pakistani social media influencer named Dananeer Mobeen shared a video on Instagram wherein she can be heard saying, “Yeh Hamari car hai, ye hum hain aur ye hamari pawri (party) ho rahi hai.” The video became the talk of the town due to Mobeen’s pronunciation of the word party.

After the pawri video became a trend, musician Yashraj Mukhate, made his signature style music video on this trend. The musician, who is known for his rendition of Rasode Mein Kaun Tha put this music video out on Instagram with the caption, “Aajse me party nahi karunga sirf pawri karunga. Kyunki party karne me wo maza nahi jo pawri karne me hai.”

The track by Yashraj has over 43 million views so far and has been complimented by celebrities like the Gully Boy actor Siddhant Chaturvedi, Archana Puran Singh, comedian Sahil Shah and social media influencers Dolly Singh and Kusha Kapila.

Paul O'Grady shares outrage over Lydd pug theft and warns <b>Instagram</b> followers not to walk pets ... thumbnail

Paul O’Grady has warned dog owners not to walk their pets alone following a pug theft on the Romney Marsh.

Mrs Cowlard, who was walking her dogs in Lydd, was approached by a masked stranger in an alleyway before having her 11-year-old pug snatched in a pre-planned theft.

Wednesday’s crime, which has left 72-year-old Mrs Cowlard devastated, has sparked a mammoth social media appeal to locate her missing dog.

Aldington celebrity O’Grady – well known for his love of the four-legged animals – has since shared the missing pet poster to his 443,000 Instagram followers in a bid to help find the pooch.

“An elderly lady was walking her pugs in the village of Lydd in Kent when a big brave man wearing a balaclava walked up and took one,” he wrote.

“The pug that this unmitigated piece of human excrement stole is 11 years old and her owner is totally heart broken.

“If anyone knows or hears anything could you report it?

“Dog theft is one of the lowest crimes that unfortunately is on the rise. Keep an eye on your pet. Don’t leave them alone in the garden and if you can don’t walk them on your own. Take care.”

O’Grady’s, post has been liked by 12,600 people.

The pug theft happened between 10.30am and 11am on Wednesday, near to the Robin Hood Lane in Lydd.

Speaking yesterday, Mrs Cowlard said: “No one’s going to want her aside from me as she’s going deaf and has lost half her teeth. I really hope she has been dumped somewhere and we can find her.

“There was a man all in black – he was either in a balaclava or he had a woolly hat and mask – so I waited for him to come down the alley because of social distancing.

“When he came through he bent down to make a fuss and said ‘you’re lovely doggies aren’t you’.

“He was stroking one of their heads and unclipping the lead with the other hand. I screamed and went hysterical but he picked her up and ran off with her.

“I can’t explain how devastating something like this is.”

Anyone who thinks they have information on the dog theft should contact police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/30585/21 or call 01797 320788.

Albert Pujols clears up retirement rumors after wife’s social media post



Albert Pujols clears up retirement rumors after wife's <b>social</b> media post thumbnail

Albert Pujols

Albert Pujols has been put in the awkward spot of clearing up retirement chatter fueled largely by his wife.

The Los Angeles Angels designated hitter clarified Saturday that he has not yet made a decision about his playing career beyond 2021, and no announcement would come until after the season.

“I think our organization, my friends, people that follow my career for 21 years deserve better than just me or her posting something on Instagram,” Pujols said Saturday, via Greg Beacham of the Associated Press. “This thing just got blown out of proportion. My mind is not even there. My mind is on staying focused, healthy, and hopefully trying to help this ballclub win this year, and that’s it. If I feel at the end of the year that that’s it, I’ll announce it (and) go home. But I’m not even there yet.”

Pujols added that he was taking a nap when his wife made the Instagram post that resulted in him waking up to hundreds of missed calls and messages on his phone.

Since the start of the 2017 season, Pujols has hit only .242 and is averaging a modest 18 home runs per season. He turned 41 in January and his contract expires at the end of the season, and he probably wouldn’t find a ton of demand as a free agent.

It’s hard not to love Roy Keane on Instagram.

The Manchester United legend recently joined the social media platform and has brought his unique brand of humour with him.

Keane has now posted five photos, from an opening selfie with his dog to a comical Valentine’s Day message showing him grappling with two West Ham players during his time at Nottingham Forest.

In his latest post, Keane has been getting on his bike.

But despite wearing a protective helmet, the former midfield general insisted he wouldn’t be donning lycra for his cycle.

In it he says: “I’ll wear the helmet but if you see me wearing lycra, run me over.”

The post has already been liked 145,000 times since being posted on Saturday afternoon.

The 49-year-old already has 1.2m followers on his Insta account, but in typical Keano fashion he has yet to follow one single person.
