Netflix has enlisted the help of former SABC1 Xhosa News anchor Noxolo Grootboom to promote their upcoming series How to Ruin Christmas.

The promo-vid doesn’t give much away but sees Grootboom chatting with presenters Katleho and Rethabile Ramaphakela about Succulent- the adorable sheep from the shows first season.
Accompanying the Instagram video was the caption:
“Because sin'thanda nonke emakhaya, here’s a sneak peek of umam Noxolo Grootboom and Katleho & Rethabile Ramaphakela as they talk about the return of #HowToRuinChristmas.”
