If you grew up in the '80s and '90s, you'd have surely chilled out with a bottle of Gold Spot (yes, we can hear you go 'The Zing Thing!'). Now, the fizzy drink, which used to be the height of cool back then, can be enjoyed once again. At least on screen!
This poster featuring Samantha Akkineni and Vijay Deverakonda, laughing and bonding over bottles of Gold Spot, has sent social media on a nostalgia trip. The poster is from the upcoming Tamil film Mahanati, titled Nadigayar Thilagam in Tamil. The film is set in different periods of time and Samantha and Vijay are said to be part of the '80s. So of course, Gold Spot had to be in the picture.
Dressed in the garb of the day, Samantha is seen wearing an old fashioned blouse and skirt with rose tinted sunglasses while Vijay sports a funky haircut and a big leather belt. In what seems to be a happy moment between the couple, they share a drink of Gold Spot standing next to an old timey scooter.
As soon as Samantha tweeted the poster with the caption “Gold Spot”, Twitterati went crazy with nostalgia, reminiscing about their childhood days when they enjoyed a cool bottle of the fizzy orange drink in the summers. Vijay Devarakonda called it "vintage chill".
