- A South African driver decided to advertise his favourite beer on his car and has attracted varied reactions on social media
- The Polo driver, believed to be from, Gauteng, is now being heavily criticised on Twitter after a post was shared by @AdvoBarryRoux
- Briefly News went to the well-known and controversial account holder’s comments section to select a few of those reactions from Mzansi on Polo drivers
It has become a trend in many Mzansi townships for drivers to display anything - from bicycles to nutritional drinks - at the back of their cars using bike racks. However, one South African Volkswagen Polo driver has apparently gone too far by displaying beers on the rear of his Polo.
According to a post by @AdvoBarryRoux, the driver is based in Johannesburg, Gauteng, as his registration suggests. The car was spotted hauling a number of bottles of Corona, a beer that is mostly consumed by the working class in the townships.
Briefly News went to the comments section of the famous account holder and picked a few as many fans are shocked.
“Ja neh, these guys. Always expect something from them.”
“VW is a pandemic in Mzansi... excuse me, I mean Polo.”
“Polo drivers are all the same all over the country, I think it’s a Polo thing, when I used to own one, I would do crazy things, like having a surf boat on the rooftop.”
“Keep to social distancing. Wear a facemask when approaching this vehicle.”
“Especially month end.”
Meanwhile, Briefly News reported that a local graduate's desperate plea for work has Mzansi feeling a little heartbroken.
The young woman is an accomplished accounting graduate but still seems to have trouble finding a job.
Her touching story was shared by Twitter user @AdvoBarryRoux, who selflessly encouraged his many followers to share the young woman's details in case a potential employer might be looking. He posted:
"If you come across this please retweet for her as her bosses might be in your timeline."
