There are few things in life as sad as watching a former 007 being reduced to selling pan masala. Twitter believes it's because he still thinks he has the license to kill. We're going to laugh at that once we're done sobbing in embarrassment on Brosnan's behalf.
The face many '90s kids associate with Britain's most suave spy will now be selling Pan Bahar, and Indians across the country got their first taste of the sort of adverts we should now expect.
Still in the get-up from his upcoming film Urge - with salt-n-pepper hair and beard and dressed in a dapper suit, Pierce stands tall. With pan masala in his hands.
Class never goes out of style says the tagline, because irony. Billboards, newspaper front pages and a YouTube ad - Pan Bahar has gone all out to showcase the new face of the brand. And likewise, so has Twitter.
Bond, with a side of pan masala anyone?
By endorsing Pan masala, the former 007 seems to believe that he still has the license to kill pic.twitter.com/maV5iyjwaR— The Bad Doctor (@DOCTORATLARGE) October 7, 2016

Always had a feeling Pierce Brosnan was pansexual.— Suprateek Chatterjee (@SupraMario) October 7, 2016
Trust Indians to use Pierce Brosnan to promote 'Paan Bahaar' chewing tobacco. Love to see James Bond do a 'Haath me Lota, Moun mey Paan...' pic.twitter.com/2wisfix40m— Tarek Fatah (@TarekFatah) October 7, 2016

Pretty sure Pierce Brosnan was fooled into endorsing Pan Bahar by saying that it was some exotic Himalayan Indian herb. pic.twitter.com/nijiLsOvEc— Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) October 7, 2016
Priyanka Chopra chews Rajnigandha & now Pierce Brosnan chews Pan Bahar. Now I know why I am not successful, will start chewing gutka today.— Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) October 7, 2016
