Advertising at its Best

So we have all seen that Santam ad. You know the one where the bartender's outfit changes three times? And I bet the first time you watched it you didn't pick up those changes, but the next time it came on, your eyes were focused on the bartender and you didn't listen to a word the old guy said?

Enter Nando's. In a way that only Nando's can, they spoofed the ad. Nando's usually has the final say, but Santam nailed it.  Here is the Nando's ad and beneath it is Santam's response.



Think Nando's will deliver the goods by 4pm Thursday? I wonder how they will respond? I imagine that everyone at that agency is running around like headless chickens trying to create the perfect response.  We will wait in antici....pation. Advertising never looked this good.
