In South Africa we have a huge untapped market for new and innovative products. Because of this many of our ad agencies have been pushed to make some brilliant ads. In this blog post I am going to list my top ads to show that South Africa is on par with the rest of the world in terms of creativity.
1.) Clover South Africa
This ad appeals to the child in all of us and has a feel good feeling to it.
This ad caused so much controversy that they actually banned it and people working in the Zimbabwean Nando’s were harassed. That being said it is ironic and very clever the way it sums up 2011 and all the political events of the year.
3.) Vodacom’s Single Ladies
Who could ever forget this? This ad caused hysterics for me and many of my friends and shows that Beyonce is not the only woman who can strut her stuff!
4.) Mumma’s Vs Cafe Owners
This was just before the 2010 World Cup. To appreciate this ad you have to know about South African culture. That been said it is still funny.
5.) Lunch Bar
