Trivago Guy Abhinav Kumar reconnects with his father after 10 years

 

Switch to any channel and you can hear a man asking you to book hotels online in his inimitable voice and style. Yes, you guessed it right. We are talking about the Trivago ad model who became a sensation and internet meme since the moment his advertisement appeared on television. While numerous memes have been made on him, Abhinav Kumar (Trivago Guy) has always been a sport when it comes to the trolls. 

Talking about his stint in an interview a while back, Kumar has said, "This was the first time the company was appointing someone who was not a model as their spokesperson. It took us two days to complete a 60-second shot." Since his first ad as the brand ambassador for Trivago, Abhinav Kumar rose to fame and everyone would call him the Trivagi Guy. However, his father was not aware of it.

Abhinav Kumar, who is a country manager at Trivago and operates from Germany, took to his Twitter to share how his father was still not aware of his popularity and the news made him connect with his father after 10 years. He wrote, “My father never knew about the work I do, he always thought I have done hotel management and working in a hotel. But this morning a local Hindi newspaper carried a story and by accident, he reads that newspaper.  He called on my cell phone 1st time in last 10 year. #trivagoindia”

Abhinav Kumar joined Trivago five years ago and in 2016, his first ad aired on the television. Since then he is a popular name in the ad world. While his ads have reached heights, Kumar is in no mood to take up modelling but is happy being the spokesperson of the brand.
