Cement brand builds house fit for a giant, The Great Khali

Perhaps taking a page from Volvo Trucks, Ambuja Cement has brought in a well-known performer to 'demonstrate' its product attributes: Great Khali, a former WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) performer (born in Dhiraina, Himachal Pradesh), who measures 2.16 metres (7 ft 1 in) tall.

A non-subtitled version of the ad has more than 1 million views.
