As South Africa suits up in green and gold for the Rugby World Cup to show their support, so did the team’s sponsors. And with these Springbok ads, they stepped up their game. From tear-jerking moments to what South Africa knows best: humour.
Checkers Sixty60’s response the Springboks’ kit
South Africans were not too happy with the alternative Springbok kit, and unanimously said it gives Checkers-vibes. The non-sponsor got it just right.
How it all started, Switch Energy
Got to love how quick they were to respond to Rassie’s traffic light system.
Generating Gees, King Price
Eskom. There’s not much more to say.
Bring vir my die boks, Courier Guy
Just another example of how Hie’ Kommie Bokke remains part of South Africa’s rugby culture, even 28 years later.
Greatness is Brewing, Castle Lager
This one doesn’t hit with humour, it hits with heart.
5G Your Life, MTN
An oldie but a goodie. With undersea internet cables woes, this is something we all understand.
Silent Choir, MTN South Africa
South African Sign Language became our 12th official language, and MTN was on the nose with this silent version of the iconic Gwijo Song, Thina Siyazalana.
Not a Springbok ad, but from the land down under…
How do we say it in South African again?
“Ag shame Eddie Jones, ag shame man.”
Keep the Springbok fever going with Veldskoen
From Bok Friday to those late night Rugby World Cup games, the Springbok Veldskoen is comfortable, durable and tough…just like the Bomb Squad.
