[WATCH] Rainbow-level multiracial family playing Nando’s ‘Mzansipoli’... LOL!
This week Rice critiqued Nando’s new advert in which it introduces the country to its (fictional) new boardgame called “Mzansipoli” – a game that every South African supposedly instinctively know how to play.
He gave the ad a "hero" rating.
Mzansipoli – a game of “survival, corruption and confusion” – is hilarious.

White privilege keeps you out of jail and paying etolls is voluntary.
It’s been a long time since we’ve had a real blockbuster from Nando’s… If any brand can conduct a satire on the foibles of South African society, it must be Nando’s…Andy Rice, branding and advertising expert
