Nowadays, our nation is being solely driven by the social media. The news of everything and anything gets created and becomes a buzz amongst all. So here’s a look at few #hashtagged events that went viral on most of the social networking sites and YouTube because of their weird/ controversial/ humor quotient and for some funniest trolls being made on them :
1. The infamous ‘AIB roast’
All India Bakchod Knockout (AIB Knockout) was in the news all over for its hilarious yet ‘oh! so nasty’ content. The roasters Ranveer Singh and ArjunKapoor were being mocked and dissed in the most funny, abusive and filthy ways by the AIB panel. The show, hosted by Karan Johar, got varied reactions from Bollywood. Aamir Khan and few other celebrities condemned the show calling it extremely violent other actors took the AIB roast in a rather fun way.
2. Arnab Goswami
The editor in chief and news anchor of Times Now Arnab Goswami is generally known amongst the masses for how he conducts one-sided debates (or rather how he interrogates his panel) in a way that goes viral most of the times.Arnab is known for his extreme views. He interrupts his panel when his views don’t match with theirs, never lets the panel get away with their bent replies and his favourite one-liners include: “The nation wants to know” and “The nation demands an answer”. Many trolls and memes are coming up on Arnab Goswami and spoofs such as ‘Barely speaking with Arnub’ by TVF has gained a lot of popularity on youtube.
3. Net neutrality
The cyber space is abuzz with net neutrality these days especially when AIB came up with their brilliant video ‘Save The Internet’ regarding the issue, their first after the infamous AIB roast. Many Indians shared their views on net neutrality and sent e-mails to TRAI about their concern for losing the freedom to free internet access which may result in paying more to the mobile operators for the websites you will access and slow speed internet while accessing sites you haven’t paid for, in addition to the internet charges.If u still don’t know about Net neutrality here’s a little insight about it by AIB.
4. The Mauka-Mauka Ads
The spice of this year’s cricket World Cup was the ‘Mauka-Mauka’ Ads. The Ads were a big hit amongst the Indian cricket lovers and was a hot topic during tea conversations. Bubblewrap Productions was the brain behind the ‘Mauka-Mauka’ads which brought the whole country together to cheer and support the Indian cricket team in the World Cup. Later, many spoofs of these ads started doing rounds on youtube.
5. IIN trolls
IIN, the Idea Internet Network, trolls are all over the social networking sites these days.

Soon after the Ads came, many parodies and trolls started to surface about the IIN ads.
