Indian national men's football team captain Sunil Chhetri tweeted a screenshot of a fan texting him on Facebook on Saturday in which he asked Chhetri the ;ogin credentials of the latter's Netflix account. The tweet went viral instantaneously and there have been hilarious reactions from the fans to the same.
Chhetri in demand for a strange reason
The fan whose, identity was hidden by Sunil Chhetri, wrote to him saying, 'Chhetri Brother, Give me the User ID and password of Netflix. You may change the password after the Lockdown'. The hilarious text to the Indian Captain reflects the increased viewership of streaming services during the coronavirus lockdown.
The increased viewership has forced services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+Hotstar and YouTube to reduce the streaming quality to Standard Definition from High Definiton to preserve the streaming servers. T
The official page of the Indian football team also had a good laugh and did not miss out on the chance to remind fans to stay at home and stay safe.
The governing body of International Football (FIFA) also had quite a witty response to Chhetri's tweet and urged football fans to 'Be Active and stay Healthy at home' as part of the ongoing campaign with the WHO.
The fans had also animated and jovial responses to the hilarious tweet as expected :
The coronavirus pandemic has left the world in uncharted territory and the entertainment industry is making its way to a much larger viewer base following a total abandonment of outdoor activities. Movies and Series like the English Game (2020), Sunderland till I Die (2018), Boca Juniors Confidential (2018), All or Northing : Manchester City (2018) and Juventus FC (2018) can keep football fans entertained as sports action across the world remains suspended.
Football may resume as soon as in June in parts of Europe but it remains highly unlikely that any of the games will be open to public, thus restricting fans to their homes and glued to the streaming services to break the monotony.
