The September 2 front pages of major newspapers in India had a full page ad for Reliance Jio that seemed to featuring PM Narendra Modi for the new telecom service.

And Twitter wasted no time in blasting out jokes about the entire thing.

Can't wait for Modiji's voice to tell me "Mitroṅ, aapka dial kiya gaya number is waqt kisi anya call par vyast hai"

Well, you do know that "I'm Jio'd" is an anagram of Modi-ji.

It will be interesting to watch which TV editor will have guts to run Modi doing endorsement for Reliance today.

Narendra Modi is endorsing Reliance Jio. Makes sense for the PM to endorse a brand. Especially for him: since Roaming is free.

A lot of them made the same joke.

To sell your most ambitious product, you need your best salesman.

Modi ji has become a "Salesman" of Reliance. #RelianceकाPM

And of course, Arvind Kejriwal had something to say.
