Not quite the same, but in a similar manner once two brands in India had engaged in a witty wordplay, taking Twitter by a pleasant surprise. Yes, they were Amazon India and Zomato.

Back in 2015, when Zomato made some frequent changes to its logo, promoting it s campaign Amazon India tweeted #AurDikhao. Zomato cheekily replied by saying, You should have seen the ones that didn t make the cut and the tweet was attached with an image that showed Zomato aping the Amazon arrow pointing from A-Z.
