East London Hotel wants your vote in the next election!

Election posters are everywhere, but some of them are not actually what they look like, on closer inspection, you will notice they are very different.


East London, South Africa – Election season is upon us and every single lamp post, traffic light and stop sign has been plastered with posters by different political parties urging votes in their direction.

The Highgate Hotel in East London has taken advantage of the electoral build-up by adding their own posters to the mix. While their posters may look like they are affiliated to various political parties, they are in fact just good doppelgangers.

People have been deeply impressed with the advertising campaign and have praised the marketing department for getting so creative. Some have even said the campaign is along the very same standard that Nandos regularly sets.

“Take off the mask Nandos! We know that’s you” – Luthando Nqagela

“Wooow! Creative, strategic and brilliant with some humour… Did you get the Nandos guy for your ads??” – Siwongiwe Lujalajala

“Whoever heads up their marketing strategy deserves a little bonus for these. Probably an ex Nandos Marketer” – Wesley Petersen

“Their marketing team’s creativity is on another level” – Sanelisiwe Khwela

Take a look at the brilliant signs below.
