Rahul Dravid, retired Indian cricketer and the poster man for chill has lost his cool. Yes, you read it right. The unthinkable has become reality.

In a spot for CRED, ‘Jammy’ as he is popularly called loses his cool while stuck in traffic. From egging someone for a fight to spilling liquid on a car’s window to yelling “Indranagar ka gunda hun main”.

In the ad description, the former cricketer says, “Hi, this is Rahul Dravid writing the description for this video. Sorry, I lost my temper there. I am meditating these days. Well, I am just writing this to let you know that CRED truly rewards you every time you pay your credit card bills on time. They are good people.”
