Professional wrestling is always a superb spectacle, and what better way to get across the powerful message of breast cancer awareness?


Katlego tag teams with Comedy Central to body slam breast cancer.

Who doesn’t love some rough and tumble in the ring? Well, breast cancer, for one. Professional wrestling is always a superb spectacle, and what better way to get across the powerful message of breast cancer awareness?

October is Boobtober on Comedy Central, and to create a series of ads highlighting the importance – and success – of early diagnosis, their agency, Omni Creative, called on Spitfire Director Katlego Baaitse to weave his magic.

Personally affected by breast cancer within his own family, Katlego was especially committed to this project, as were many others involved in the shoot, who all gave passionately of their time and talent. Taking a tongue-in-cheek approach to a serious subject, Katlego introduces wrestling supremos Mammo “Marauder” Mphoza, “Sterkte” Bettie Sareltjie and Mighty Melissa, who body slam the infinitely evil “Beastly” Breast Cancer in fabulously flamboyant fashion.

If you want your idea to come out on top, contact Spitfire now. And find out how Katlego can body slam mediocrity to create a winner for you.
