Nepali In an Hotmail Ad


Smiling in his maroon t-shirt with the card in hand is Prayeen Singh, vocalist of the award-winning Nepali American Pop Rock band, The Vibez.

The band had won the title for the “Best Band of the Year” from both Image and Hits FM Awards events in 2009.

Singh, who’s currently working in Hotmail’s Mountain View (Silicon Valley Office) as Hotmail Engineer, said, “Our friends were taking photos in office but I wasn’t sure for what.

After a few weeks, hundreds of my friends called me and told me that they saw me on Microsoft Hotmail’s online ad campaign.”

The Hotmail engineer who didn’t believe it at first says he’s thankful to his company, and that the ad has motivated him a lot.

“I mean, who wouldn’t be, with Hotmail choosing a Nepali guy like me in one of their campaigns?” he exclaimed.
