Ever heard of dopamine, a neurotransmitter released by the brain when we experience happiness or pleasure? Popularly known as the ‘feel-good’ chemical, studies show that viewing great works of art also triggers a surge of dopamine. Turns out, the same chemical is released every time we listen to a catchy, foot-tapping number as well.
No wonder, then, that the internet is raving over Suede Gully—a music video produced by PUMA and launched on November 5, this year. Born out of a collaboration of street artists, this video raises a toast to India’s vibrant and subversive gullies and stands by the essence of PUMA’s iconic Suede collection. With over 35K likes, 912 comments, and shared by more than 5.9K people, this anthem is taking Facebook by storm. From celebrities to fans to artists associated with the video, everybody is excited about it. Let’s see who’s been talking:
