Nando’s have long been known for their topical ads whose cheeky and often subversive humour poke fun and ruffle feathers (an appropriate analogy for a fast food restaurant chain specializing in chicken). Their latest one is another classic:
Prior to yesterday’s game, Nando’s was offering the Mexican football team and their supporters a free lunch if they lost the opening game against South Africa . The ‘small print’ of the ad reads: “Dear Mexican player, most foreigners think South Africa is rife with bribery and corruption. To live up to your misconceptions, we’re offering you – and your spectators – a free lunch if you lose tomorrow. Just bring your Mexican passport into any Nando’s restaurant between 14.00 and 17.00 and we’ll give you a delicious flame-grilled quarter chicken and chips each. Free.
P.S. If you don’t have a passport, we’re sure someone can arrange one for you.”
Gotta love it !! Anyway, sadly for SA , no free meals for Mexicans but good thing for Nando’s !
