A township love story plays out in this ad directed by Egg Films' Terence Neale. A wire-frame car artist has his sight set on the pretty girl but nothing he creates seems to get her attention. Until he takes a deep breath and makes his master move.
Directed by Greg Gray of Velocity Films, for Amstel Lager, we find a story about a legend who took his time. Remember now, if at first you don't succeed, then try try again. Also, all good things come to those who wait. Wait, I think I just talked myself into a Guinness ad.
Nevermind all that then. This boxer wants to give up, but his community won't let him.
The old adage "Time well spent " rings true in the brand-new spot for Amstel Lager and OwenKessel, directed by Velocity's Greg Gray. Gray and his team went into painstaking detail to craft an epic ad that flows between the past and present, providing a nostalgic slice of life in 1980s South Africa. The final product is an uplifting tale of strength and perseverance, beautifully told.
Timothy has some nice gadgets. And a nice bank.
Tom went to the shops for some butter and somehow returned with a giant hamster. You know, as you would.
These cute quirky films lead to FNB, which reaffirms the special harmony of idiosyncrasies that make up people the world over - and regardless of where you fit in, FNB bank always caters to the individual.
Playboy & Y&R South Africa show us everything by not showing us anything at all. Playboy and the trends they've seen have influenced mens hairstyles through the ages. Of course it has.
Die Antword rule my world and have done everything right in this video for Baby's on Fire off their album TEN$ION. From the smiley-face shorts & bra to scary stunts where the boys with the motorcycle and BMWs dance around Jolanda within inches of her tiny frame, the look and feel and attitude is all kinds of right. Plus it depicts that double-standard so well, big brother can get jiggy all he wants but nobody better treat his baby sister to as much as a kiss. When Jolanda finally bricks Ninja in the teeth, the baby sister in me had an evil smile on her face. Ninja directed this together with Terence Neale. The Red Bull bit is a tad tedious, but I'll forgive 'em just for that motorcycle kiss moment, wowza.
As Let It Rain Films' producer Sam Kelly says:
“Making this PSA was a very humbling experience for us. We often use the metaphor ‘to walk in someone else’s shoes.’ Well this very brave lady, Christabella Zenzile, cannot walk – she is in a wheelchair – but spending a few days with her made us count our blessings tenfold and get the smallest taste of what living with a disability is all about. There is just so much we don’t know about and so much we all need to bring into our awareness to make South Africa more accessible to all.”
"I fink U freeky and I like u a lot" and hell breaks loose in a black and white inferno of dancing elephant-snouted kids, albinos, real live snakes - caressed in the most sexually suggestive way possible, rats, stuffed lions, and black eyed Yolanda floating in a tub of FREEKY. There's even a kid with Yolanda's haircut painted in black flashing by for freaky-deaky details. Also, roaches. We can't have a video without a district 9 reference. Well done on the directing, Ninja.
Nandos, is there anything you won't mock? Of COURSE not, in this ad Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe is the last lonely dictator as the rest of the words despots have falled. He misses them, they used to have so much fun, being bloodthirsty tyrants together. Or you know, singing karaoke with Kim.
Greenpeace are reaching out to South African citizens with some advice about global warming:
White is the new green
Simply painting your roof white reflects the sun’s rays, which helps cool down the environment. in the fight against global warming, one degree cooler in our cities equates to three degrees cooler at the poles. Which means a better chance of survival for animals like the Arctic Fox, whose home is melting at a rapid rate.
Way to get me all weepy eyed, Allan Grey. This story will go straight to the heart of most parents. As a child, all you want is to grow, be older and wiser, as a parent, all you want is to cherish every moment. Truth well told.
You don't need to understand Afrikaans to understand the story. The mother at the start tells her daughter to that it's just five more sleepies until the big day. The daughter, impatient with counting wishes herself to next week and her birthday. She continues using her gift to fast-forward her life to ride big kid rides at the amusement park, to marry the boy of her dreams, to land that dream job. To skip the whole pregnancy and see the moment of her own daughters birth....
