"Who reads cartoons in newspapers these days?" NESCAFÉ Cartoonist Fired

In this Nescafe India commercial, a young cartoonist is fired from the newspaper where he works because, "Who reads cartoons in newspapers these days?"

So, the cartoonist loses his job and goes home. When he gets there, he drinks his instant coffee and gets ideas for more cartoons.

This is a fairy tale of a commercial, telling us that ideas can come from Nescafe and that putting your work out there for free can result in lots of "views" and "likes."

Does Nescafe understand that the Internet does not pay?
