Chicken Licken is notorious for its witty and hilarious advertisements, which often poke fun at serious issues in South Africa. Despite pointing out some of the bad things in a comical way, the fast-food restaurant always manages to remind Saffas why we love our country so much.
Chicken Licken's newest ad poked fun at several hilarious incidents that went viral during the national coronavirus lockdown.
The narrator in the advertisement, comedian Tyson Ngubeni, explains why South Africans are such a soulful people.
Ngubeni starts off the add by saying:
"South Africa - a nation that is always been known to overcome adversity. But what exactly makes them such a soulful people?"
He then dives into several examples, including a couple of jokes about moments that went viral during lockdown. In one scene, officer pull over a car to find a woman in the back of the trunk. The incident refers to the man who tried to sneak his girlfriend over the border.
Chicken Licken posted the ad on Twitter, writing:

Their new advert features an Icelandic boy who was a South African in a previous lifetime. The advert features all the right South Africanisms but in a completely foreign setting.
The cast is Icelandic and the director of the advert Alan Irvine had to team up with Icelandic production company True North. According to Irvine, the theme of the advert is South Africans being able to recognise each other no matter where in the world they might be.
