We believe that we can do justice to the song, as we have previously demonstrated with K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag” that ended up with over half a million `caller tunes’ downloads and came to be known as the `unofficial’ anthem of the 2010 FIFA WC. “Endless Summer” is another great India friendly pop song and we are confident that it will become a huge hit in India as the tournament progresses, supported by some out of the box marketing ideas that we have lined up for it.”
