Seems old Julius had a sense of humour failure about this one, its quite funny though!

Ad (and story) here: Nando's Ad

"We are fully aware that the advertisement is intended at mocking the president of the ANCYL, and in a racist fashion portrays political leaders as cartoons."

"While awaiting the legal advice, the ANCYL instructs the Nando's Company and those who did the advertisement to promptly withdraw the advert from all television screens and radio channels.

"If Nando's does not withdraw the adverts, the ANCYL will mobilise the people of South Africa to take militant action against Nando's and anything associated with Nando's."

I wanted to say something about this earlier, but wasnt sure if this was not one of those threads heading for the cooer, but thanx Rover you opened the door (or a can of worms?...) :ilikeit:

I applaud Nandos, for their absolutely brilliant advertising campaign. and the remarks made above of the threat to Nando's if they dont do as "they" say, confirms once again the reason for these people being made fun of.

oh, and I do so wish that someone could explain to me (or Julius) how an advertising campaign like this one specifically, could be construed as racist?

it seems that word is being used very loosely and to blame anything or anyone for anything :ilikeit:

I have always loved the Nando's ads.

They are even better than their food!

Go Nando's!

And in my humble opinion Julius is an oxygen thief who wouldn't understand what was being explained to him.

If there's one thing I miss...it's those wonderfully funny Nando's ads...

Thanks Rover...

It's now in the headlines that the ANCYL is threating to boycott Nando's....clearly they can't do anything legal against them...... And I can promise you, for every ANCYL person that will boycott, 3 "other party people" will support them!!! And it is a funny add. It's not even that bad really..... :blink:

Nandos ads are brilliant!

Also heard one on the radio, day after JZ's charges were dropped against him:

Was a dialogue between "comrade boss" and "Julias" talking about lunch at Nandos (and taking money from petty cash for it) etc.

When the comrade boss mentions that the meal seems expensive; Julias says not to worry...he warned them of the esteemed having lunch there and they agreed to drop their charges! It is free for you!

My eyes were tearing from laughter, but haven't heard it since... :blink:

Dear Mr Malema,

You are not being portrayed as a cartoon. A cartoon is a drawing. You are being portrayed as a Dummy.

Any dummy can see that.

If it wasn't so sad, it'd be utterly laughably ridiculous.

Someone disconnect this guy's life support system....he must be brain dead!!

And, another thing, he really thinks he lives in Soviet Russia.......'instructing" Nandos to pull the ad!!!!

I've enjoyed Nando's brilliant ads - they're a commentary on society and politics....from Eugene and his horse, all the way to Julius and his ass.

Oh, sorry, I meant Julius THE ass.

I read in the newspaper that the ANCYL and Nandos have a meeting scheduled, I think next week Monday, so Nandos is entertaining their "request" at least? I hope not, this is seriously damaging free speech, if he starts threatening military style action against anyone he dislikes and those threatened give in, we will soon have the next Mugabe on our doorstep

Yip, but thats one of the reasons we're doing 'the move'... I cannot gamble with my childs future, nor mine...

I don't think a lot of people realise the level of socialist influence in the government and ANC.

AWWW mann! Now I feel left out. I haven't seen the ad and when I try to watch the link in your post it says an error has occured, Video removed by user. Did I do something drastically wrong (wouldn't surprise me, quite technologically challenged) or has it been removed for real? Possibly due to legal reasons ???

Nes :ilikeit:
