Santam responds to Nando’s spoof with absolutely brilliant ad challenge [video]
Posted by on Apr 24th, 2012

Not sure if you’ve been following the whole Nando’s vs Santam advertising exchange, but i’ve just watched the latest response from Santam and it’s been a while since i’ve seen such an awesome comeback.

Basically Santam made an ad a while back starring Ben Kingsley. Nando’s decided it would rip off that ad and made a spoof commercial along the same lines. Today Santam released this.

Get ready to stand up and slow clap.

Boom…well played Santam. Well played.

Ball is in your court Nando’s.

Here’s the original ad from Santam (which by the way is impressive in it’s own right) and the spoof ad response from Nando’s.

Can’t wait to see the response from Nando’s.

Quality stuff this.

The only thing is the other night they played the Nando’s spoof just before the real Santam one which either means the broadcasters had it the wrong way around (as they always do) or Santam and Nandos has some kind of agreement. either way. Good stuff!!!

But what happened to Sir Ben’s voice? That aint his!

YES! Now THAT’S a cool reply.

Still can’t shake the feeling that the kids would be better off with a healthier meal than the stuff available at Nandos. Or if Santam provides the Kids’ Home with free insurance cover.

Just my 0.02.

Dude, we all eat Nando’s and other take aways, who cares if the kids would be better off with a healthier meal. You can’t deny orphans the chance, nay! the joy of eating some junk food. They are allowed some fun as well dont you think?

Let the kids enjoy the nando’s.

Way to go Santam! Thanks to them those kids are going to have
the kind of special day that doesnt come along very often for most
kids who live in childrens home. Double thumbs up for sticking Nando’s
a toffee and putting smiles on the kids faces in one go!

Keep up the good work!
