'We'll be there for you': Mumbai Police assures in F.R.I.E.N.D.S-style
Even when Mumbai Police officials are busy helping and rescuing people, braving torrential rainfall, they made sure their Twitter handle assures Mumbaikars of their support. This time, they've aptly chosen the iconic American sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and put its own twist to the theme song. They replaced the 'I'll' and made it "We'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour."
'Right here. For you Mumbai. Always'
The 20-sec GIF has been viewed 15,200 times!
The tweet seems to have struck a chord with the millenials, as the GIF was viewed some 15,200 times and has received close to 2,000 likes! It shows two pictures in 20 seconds: in one a police official is seen holding an umbrella and six others wearing yellow raincoats, and the other showed the raincoat-wearing men pushing a truck off a waterlogged road.
They also warned about low visibility using water droplets
This is not the first tweet posted by Mumbai Police related to this year's massive rainfall. On July 9, when the city was submerged in water, they had posted another GIF, which looked like raindrops falling on the viewer. It was accompanied by a tweet that read: "The visibility today, will mostly be poor, please ride & drive with care #MumbaiRains #RoadSafety"
