- A new advert by Chicken Licken referencing 'Knight Rider' has Mzansi impressed by its cinematic quality
- The stellar advert even features a hilarious cameo by the original 'rider', David Hasselhoff
- Mzansi was definitely dazzled by the ad and took to the comments section to react
A thrilling new advert by local fast-food giant Chicken Licken definitely has Mzansi feeling a little nostalgic. The cinematic masterwork charmingly references the iconic 1980s TV show Knight Rider, in which David Hasselhoff once starred as a high-tech, modern crime fighter.
The cool advert stars 'Nyathi Rider' out and about in a uniquely South African kasi setting. The young man clearly goes nowhere without his sexy, completely self-aware black ride named KITT.
The ad even features a hilarious cameo by the original 'Knight Rider', David Hasselhoff, which definitely had Mzansi star-struck.
Younger viewers, however, were comically unaware of the iconic reference and many were left a little confused. Check out some of the interesting comments below:
@askgeraldcfp complimented the advert:
"Your advert is excellent. You got a whole Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT) to come to SA. NOW I'M CRAVING THE CHICKEN."
@ushaymamba was confused:
"Lol, this is clearly for our parents, I have no idea what this is referencing, it's funny tho."
"I. Am. Entertained!"
"Lol, I found that little talk towards the end very funny! Wierd thing to tell Kitt, especially after he ditched the American Michael!"
"Make sure you install the turbo boost!"
"You've outdone yourselves this time Chicken Licken, salute to the marketing and ads team."

In other funny news about fast food, Briefly News previously reported that Nando's SA got Mzansi laughing again, this time for hilariously clapping back at one Twitter user asking for a free meal. The cheeky restaurant account has shaded the young man's maths skills.
It all started when fellow food giant @SteersSA asked its many followers to solve a simple maths problem in the hopes of bagging a free meal. @15TeeJay is certainly a Nando's fan and was probably hoping the restaurant would offer him the same freebie.
"@NandosSA, Ke kopa Lunch Tuu?" he captioned the pleading post.
@NandosSA definitely never responds to social media users without a saucy response and had this to say:
" You asking us because dololo PhD in BODMAS neh? You ask, we deliver. Simple mathematics!"
Mzansi social media users found the exchange absolutely hilarious and took to the comments section to share in the joke. Check out some of the responses below:
"Why does it have to be this difficult?? Nothing for mahala at all. Maths never loved us."
"I can give you a number of reasons why I need the meal too."
"Don't be hurt neh? They also don't know the answer."
"Ooouch!!! I felt that. Kodwa Nandos admin uwenzani."
" I'm crying... Why y'all gotta be so ratcheted though?"
"Admin surely will offer him rolls with extra flour on them."
