For the NSRI’s 50th anniversary, they created an advert dedicated to the heroes that risk their lives every day to save the lives of others. Get ready because it is a tear-jerker!


The NSRI created a beautifully moving tribute video to the heroes that give up time with their families and risk their lives to save others.

For some time now the advert has been featured on some of the lifestyle channels on DSTV. We first saw the advert and bawled our eyes out. It is an incredibly moving video showing how important sea rescue is.

It also showcases what these heroes give up to save the lives of others. The advert comes on quite often and we sob every single time. It hits you right in the heart and makes you feel so much love.

It shows a bride delivering a wedding speech about her absent father as he heads out into a stormy Cape ocean on a rescue mission.

The advert was created by Ogilvy Cape Town and directed by Greg Gray of Romance Films. It is a world class advert that really highlights the dedication of volunteers in the organisation.

“These are amazing, selfless and brave people who give up parts of their lives to save the lives of others and it’s really uplifting to see the way that key figures in our industry responded as they did to deliver this remarkable salute.”

Go and get all of your tissues because this one is worth the “snot en trane”. Watch it below.
