Pierce Brosnan needs no introduction. Unless you've been living under a rock for ages, you know Brosnan was the fifth actor to play James Bond, debuting as the British spy in 1994.

Known for his acting skills, charitable work and environmental activism, Brosnan is much loved in India as he is adored abroad.

But a certain news on Friday morning came as a shocker for his Indian fans.

An advertisement on the front page of a leading daily showed Brosnan endorsing Pan Bahaar with the caption, "Class never goes out of style". In fact, when one visits the website of the gutka company, a pop-up contest appears. The quiz asks people to recognise who their new brand ambassador is to win prizes. Take a look.

pan bahar

There's no doubt that the man in the image is Pierce Brosnan. The answer to the quiz was to be disclosed on October 7, and with an entire page dedicated to Pierce Brosnan endorsing Pan Bahar, we certainly got the answer.

"I am very excited to be chosen as the brand ambassador of a brand like Pan Bahar. Pan Bahar, like Bond, has stood the test of time and is a winner in its own right. It has got class. That’s something that never goes out of style," said Brosnan in a statement released by the company.

Netizens were quick to come up with James Bond jokes. Some social media users expressed their opinion on the dangers of consuming tobacco and condemned Brosnan's endorsement of the product. Here's how social media users reacted.

"Pierce Brosnan endorsing the pan nagar masala which is also known for license to kill people, Shocker (sic)."

"Explains the iconic pause. "My name is Bond, *turns sideways, releases brown jet from mouth, looks at adversary* James Bond. #PunBahar (sic)."

"What's Jamshed Bond (sic)."

"So now before every Bollywood movie 'Pierce Brosnan' ad will be played instead of 'Gutkha Mukesh' (sic)."

"Pierce Brosnan needs to know pan masala doesnt make you classy, it makes you SICK!!! (sic)."

"@PierceBrosnan sir what is wrong with you?pan bahar ?really? What a mighty fall (sic)."

"Pierce Brosnan has taken his dialogue too far: I always enjoyed learning a new tongue (sic)."

"Pierce Brosnan. Played James Bond. Endorses Pan Bahar. Licensed to kill (sic)."

"After having pan bahar, Pierce Brosnan will say "I'm bond (Spit out)...James bond (sic)."

"Priyanka Chopra chews Rajnigandha & now Pierce Brosnan chews Pan Bahar. Now I know why I am not successful, will start chewing gutka today (sic)."

"Ohhkay! I get it now. Pierce Brosnan and Pan Bahar share the same initials (sic)."

Take a look at the full advertisement here, where Brosnan is seen executing Bond-inspired stunts with the Pan Bahar tin-pack as his weapon of destruction.
