The Ola twitter account too had been watching from the sidelines, occasionally getting in on the joke as well. Then they did something, Within a few hours of the trend, quite incredibly, Ola managed to deploy actual boats that were helping people who were stranded.
Ola staffs decked in Ola T shirts, and were helping bystanders for free. OlaBoats would ferry people and supplies to the stranded, and both the services are being offered for free.
It immediately went viral.
Needless to say Ola earned a lot of Goodwill online.
