Ain’t Nobody Fuckin’ With My Clique

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.
