Column and Stacked Column - Mixed Chart in Excel and PowerPoint

Couple of days back a friend of mine came to me and asked for help to create a chart that should
display the mother brand's objective as column chart and its line extensions sales achievement as stacked chart month by month.
This may also be used  to show objective of the Brand Vs. Sales achievement of various SKUs.(stock-keeping unit).
Well , neither Excel not PowerPoint has an option to mix two chart types in a single chart.
So, I tried and created a simple cheat.

Here is the Chart.

Take a look and use the PowerPoint template for the same. 

Some day you might need it :-)
