Indian deities in merchandising?

Our world, present day:

You know how figures from Greek and Roman mythology show up in advertising, and various commercial uses? (Venus brand razors, Hermes as florist mascot, etcetera.)

Does anyone have examples of this happening with Indian deities? (That's "from India", not "Native American".) I can't think of any offhand, but of course I don't know every Indian deity (nor every advertising campaign).

I'd be interested in examples from anywhere in the world, though it would be best if they're in English (I can also muddle through French if necessary), or if there's an English translation/explanation available.
