India is a country where people take cricket more seriously than their jobs. It's a place where an unannounced holiday is observed during the World Cup, and where every child has a bat and ball. Yes, cricket is a serious business in our country. Now, imagine what would happen if the television went blank during a high-voltage match.
Well, something like that happened today during the second Test of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
The video streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar went down for a period of time during the high-voltage match, prompting people to express their anguish on Twitter. The service outage started at around 12 pm, and people shared pictures of their blank television screens on Twitter.
However, the serious situation took a lighter turn when "meme makers" flooded Twitter with hilarious memes about the outage. From using the famous Hera Pheri template to portraying how other streaming platforms benefited from the outage, people had a lot to say.
Here are some of the best memes we came across:
