Nandos have nailed it, once again by channeling the age old philosophy that you ought to at least buy someone dinner before you screw them. This ad was in most of Johannesburg’s daily papers this morning. [Pic : Twitter]
What does Beyonce do after headlining V Festival? Go to Nando’s obviously. Go to Nando’s and order 48 chickens – of course. It wasn’t all for her if you were wondering, no, this was not an epic case of the munchies, although that would have been terrific.
Last month we shared with you the first video in the Nando’s “25 Reasons Why South Africa Is Awesome” campaign. It was dedicated to South Africa’s car guards. Their new advert, however, is even more endearing: it celebrates all those people temporarily turning into Zula warriors when they hear Mandoza’s “Nkalakatha”.
To celebrate their 25th birthday, Nando’s is asking South Africans to give them 25 reasons why South Africa is awesome. To kick things off they have made this hilarious advert, dedicated to the country’s car guards.
There is a good chance that you may not be aware that “Coca Tea” has been for sale in Limpopo, and Jozi. Nando’s knows, but it doesn’t approve.
The last time we discussed Nando’s Souperstars on 2oceansVibe, the campaign had only just begun. Since then, more than 800 South Africans have signed up to join the cause!
DStv has recently graciously lifted its self-imposed suspension of Nando’s “Diversity” anti-xenophobia ad. But it seems this incredibly generous move by DStv has gone unappreciated by Nando’s. The restaurant-chain says it won’t be spending any money to have that advert flighted on DStv.
After Nando’s brought to everyone’s attention that the Khoisan are the only true inhabitants of South Africa, this seems appropriate. The suggestion of a new name for Cape Town comes after the memorial service of Khoisan traditional leader, Dawid Kruiper, who passed away earlier this month.
Not one of South Africa’s TV channels have had the balls to show the new Nando’s TV advert. So TopTV has decided to step up and teach the rest a lesson in freedom of speech. They say it should be up to the public to choose whether or not they want to watch it.
Yesterday, Nando’s made a decision to hit back at our nation’s broadcasters. They published a summary of their pro-diversity advert in the Sunday papers in response to the SABC, DSTV, M-Net and e.tv banning the advert.
They say: “They’ve made the decision for you. Unlike our broadcasters, we’re giving you the right to choose.”
That’s how we feel too, because nobody should treat you like a child.

It’s been a few months since Nando’s has graced us with one of their viral hits, but the long wait is over. Hot off of the video presses, their latest offering is a cunning spoof of an all too familiar ad. Click through for the video.
Last night saw the expulsion of Julius Malema, along with some of his brothers-in-arms, from the ANC. Now might be a good time to sit back and reflect on this prophetic Nando’s poster, released in November last year, that now rings truer than ever. The headline reads: “Juju, you’ve been served.” While the body copy [...]
You may have heard recently that former Model C schools – with English as the medium of instruction – may be scrapping African languages. Naturally, Nandos had something to say about this malarky. The headline reads: “Respect your (mother) tongue” While the body copy reads: “Give it a taste of our delicious Peri-Peri, flame-grilled chicken.” [...]
Of course it wasn’t Nandos. It was Gary Johnston! I guess that’s just one less guest for dinner this weekend, hey Mr Mugabe?
I was a big fan of the Vodacom ad some time ago, which featured the African-dictator-type character, laughing as he abuses his power, repeatedly delivering the catchphrase “We’ve been having it!” The central idea of Nando’s festive season campaign follows that trend and revolves around a Robert Mugabe lookalike, as he reminisces about the good [...]
Always picking up on the nation’s mood, the best in the business have been at it again. There isn’t really much need in beating around the bush with this one. The bushes, quite frankly, aren’t there to be beaten around any more. They have withered and dried.
Nando’s have taken things to the next level this time, with the appointment of their new “CEO.” His name is Kagiso and the whole ad rips off every ounce of the Trevor Noah Cell C ads. They mention 5G (rather than Cell C’s claimed 4G) and they even play with the Cell C ‘logo’ at the end. Full marks!
