Britney Spears, Dosa, & ‘Pasoori’ – The Viral Combo No One Knew They Needed
It’s not every day that Britney Spears shares something on her social media that directly touches the hearts of South Asians. But when she does, we are simply blown away!
American singer and songwriter Britney Spears is apparently a fan of satisfying cooking videos and of Punjabi music. The 40-year-old singer reposted the making of dosa from Mini Kitchen India’s Instagram. The cherry on top, she linked the groovy Punjabi track, ‘Pasoori’ in its background and has won all of South Asia’s hearts including the singer, Ali Sethi.
Mini Kitchen India uses tiny utensils to create ASMR videos of Indian foods. On Sunday, Spears took to her Instagram with one of their preparation videos of a button dosa and added the Coke Studio track to it.
The video eventually reached the creators of this song and they flocked to Spear’s post to document their excitement. A surprised and overwhelmed Sethi commented, “Omg what!”
Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan, the mastermind behind Coke Studio this year, also commented, “feels good knowing our song has reached previously unvisited/less frequented cultures, spaces and people. Love it!”
The Indian writer and comedian Varun Grover also took to the media sharing app and shared the video on his stories with the caption, “Britney Spears making button dosa to the music of Pasoori is the kind of global citizen liberals want.” True that!
Over the years, Coke Studio Pakistan has become a legend amongst South Asians for producing music that has the power to win hearts globally. ‘Pasoori’ from Season 14 of the show has been a tremendous hit and the world is vibing to it.
Britney Spears listening to it is a sure shot way to make the song famous internationally and we are thrilled for the artists.
Special round of applause to Mini Kitchen for making some awesome food videos and keeping people hooked to South Asian food.
