- A Nando's ad shared on social media has the nation in stitches
- It shows a family playing a creative new game called Mzansipoli
- Social media users hailed the ad as one of the best they have seen in a long time
Nando's is ruffling feathers again. The grilled chicken outlet released an advert for a game known as Mzansipoli. It's basically like the famous monopoly game using Mzansi rules. Examples of the game-play include using the 'white privilege' card to get out of jail.
Another example is having to part with your hard-earned money when you land on the 'black tax' spot. The creative and hilarious game has social media users talking.
The ad was shared on Nandos' official Twitter page and has received over 40 000 likes so far. Many Twitter users were amused by the ad although some did point out that it was a little controversial. Social media user ZamangweIntombe said:
"Y'all keep doing the things."
"Ohhhhhhhhh boy! I like this. But this isn't going to end well."
"I can put R100 that someone is going to report this to the Advertising Standards Authority."
"Lands on Eskom - 'What's going on there? Nobody knows.' "
"Whoever is on your marketing team deserves a raise shem... they are always woke and ready for anything. But for real... I need this game in my life. I can already see me and my friend @manneldoo doing the most this festive season. #Mzansipoli"
"This is award winning story telling! Keep pushing the envelope! Forget national prayer day - e ke national discourse!!!"
"Definitely the ad of the year."
