Check out some real-life South African heroes who cameo in the new Nando’s ad – scammers have nowhere 2 hide!
Johannesburg, South Africa (26 August 2021) – Nando’s have just launched a new meal at a really cheap price… so cheap that you may think it’s a scam! But we can assure you that it is not!
When you see an SMS pop up on your phone informing you that a long lost relative has passed away and they have left you a massive inheritance… run away… it’s a SCAM! When the most undercover East African prince requests a royal audience with you and your bank account details… it’s a scam.
Following the widespread Randemic, we just can’t afford to fall prey to any more scams regardless of how they capture the imagination (or the state). So, when your favourite PERi-PERi chicken restaurant launches a brand-new meal, you place an order. At only R49, It’s not a scam. It’s a real get-full-quick scheme you can enjoy, just nje.
“Getting an early jump on Spring, Nando’s has launched a brand-new Chicken Prego paired with PERi-chips (or plain if that’s your vibe). The Nando’s Prego features a thinly-sliced and locally sourced (and sauced) chicken fillet, basted in your choice of PERi-flavour, topped with grilled onions and served on a toasted garlic-buttered Nando’s roll.”
A new Nando’s product means a new Nando’s TV ad to go with it. This advert (like all of them) is expected to prick the balloon of the current status quo. It’s a timely reminder we can’t afford to fall for anything that will lighten our pockets. But we can afford the new Nando’s Prego and Chips for R49, no scam, just nje.
“This campaign was brave, smart and very funny. I was most excited about the scripts because they had a real backstory. Given that they are inspired by actual events, figuring out how to stay true to the story while still making it my own was an interesting process. I really like that not everything is revealed in the first viewing. There are so many layers to each commercial, so the more you watch the spots, the more you pick up on,” Jabu Nadia Newmann, Director of the new Nando’s advert.
