This hilarious video opens with a scene of a couple's intense break-up. Through an unexpected twist however, it ends with a Swachch Bharat message.
A picture of a happy couple fills up the screen. The male protagonist slowly rips the photograph up as the female lead looks on, eyes brimming with tears. The formerly happy couple stare each other down to a background score that builds along with the tension on screen.
Rife with all the elements of a melodramatic soap opera, you’d be forgiven if you assumed you were watching one.
So how does one go from a tension-packed break-up scene to advocating for a Clean India?

Having given his former lady love the stare down, the male protagonist turns away in slow motion, pocketing the now ruined photograph.
“Why are you taking the photograph away with you? You could discard this too,” the heroine asks, voice choked with unshed tears.
“I could,” the man says, “but there are no dustbins around.”
As the bewildered female lead looks on, the man delivers his parting shot:
“Love can get dirty, but my country can’t.”
