In Good Hope FM’s latest tv ad campaign, they poke fun at the general clique-ness of Capetonians.
“The cheeky and rather tongue-in-cheek ad shot by Egg Films’ Slim revolves around the concept that if you don’t live in Cape Town, well you just have no hope. The concept was created by 140BBDO creatives Ivan, Alexis, Gareth and Alex, who believe it proves that those wine-guzzling rascals can laugh at themselves after all. We didn’t actually get to interview any of them but we’d imagine that if we did, they’d say something like, “It’s, like, the truth. And if you don’t, like, find it funny, you’re probs from, like, Jo’burg. Eeuw.”
The wry humour is what attracted Slim to the job in the first place. “I really digged the exaggeration and comedy; it gave us a chance to completely take the mickey out of ourselves as both Capetonians and non-Capetonians,” says Slim, ironically a non-Capetonian himself.” – The Media Online
Take a look at the ad, and let me know what you think. I had a good giggle, because, well… it’s rather accurate.
Segway’s are hilarious, besides the fact that we associate them with fat Americans who don’t want to walk around and Mall Cops, they really are super amazing. I was lucky enough to go on a segway tour through the winelands at Spier – and it’s something i would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone… they do however take you through a little training before they allow you on the beasts.
The ‘problem’ with segways is that they’ll carry on moving as long as you hold on to the handle part…. and whichever way the handle is pointing, it will move in that direction – with force. This is why you’ll see people run over by segways after they’ve already fallen off. In fact, at Spier, my other half got a little too ambitious with his segway and is now one of the VERY FEW people to have ever fallen off a segway tour at Spier and the only one to have actually ridden himself over with it too.
Regardless, i still want one.
Hitting all the wrong notes in the best possible way. Killer Karaoke features contestants challenged to perform their favorite songs in extreme and outrageous circumstances, and to make it better – it’s hosted by Jackass’s own Steve-O. The thing is, all of these people can actually sing really well, but whether they make it through the song is up to how much they can’t stand what is going on around them or happening to them.
This is one of my favourite clips from the show:
