If the flurry of fours and sixes from Chris Gayle's broad willow are not enough, the Jamaican is entertaining his legion of fans off the field too, through a funky music video and commercial aired during the ongoing Pepsi Indian Premier League (IPL).

The latest video featuring Gayle in his cool entertainer avatar has already garnered close to 2 lakh views in just three days. The video celebrates Gayle as a cricketer and an entertainer where he shows different moves from bhangra to Bollywood thumkas to other popular styles.

"We made this video to entertain my fans who love Pepsi. I am happy to have entertained everyone with my game on-field and hopefully this video will also appeal to all. I promise more Oh Yes Abhi entertainment during the upcoming matches," said Gayle.

Cricket fans witnessed history being made at the IPL recently when the Royal Challengers Bangalore star scored the fastest century in professional cricket. After scoring a ton in just 30 balls, Gayle remained unbeaten on 175 off 66 balls.

Known for his on-field antics, Gayle recently starred in a commercial with Bollywood star, Priyanka Chopra and the ad film went viral online even before it went on air.

The official video on Pepsi's YouTube page has already received over 7 lakh views and was the top trending video earlier this month. His personality is captured in a fun and irreverent manner in this 70s style video with some lines sung by Gayle himself.

After talking about four kabhi toh sixer kabhi, jogging kabhi toh gymming kabhi and cricketer kabhi toh entertainer kabhi, he reminds everyone in the video about Pepsi Oh Yes Abhi! Abhi! Abhi!
