- A funny advertisement about a misunderstanding between a farmer and his nephew has SA giggling
- In the video, the nephew is seen dancing with his farmworker instead of doing the manual labour they should have been busy with
Misunderstandings make for the best jokes. So when a King Price ad used this to sell their service, it was a success.
The company has been making a series of 'when others don't make sense' ads and the latest is one of Mzansi's favourites.
In the ad, a misunderstanding around the Afrikaans word 'skoffel' causes a farmer and a farmworker to spend their day dancing with each other, rather than doing any work.
The joy on their faces is not only enduring but funny as well.
To 'skoffel' can mean 'to dig with a hoe' or' dance', and it seems the farmer chose the more fun option.
The video is available on YouTube with a funny caption, Part of it reads:
"The king’s back with another #UnapologeticallySouthAfrican ad! And in true kingdom style, ‘Skoffel’ uses a misunderstanding (skoffel means ‘hoe’, but it can also mean ‘dance’) to make the point that some things don’t make sense… Like paying the same every month to insure a car that’s worth less every month."
Check out the hilarious video:
