To put it in context there's a massive "Proudly South African" campaign that's been running in South Africa. SA brands put the "proudly South African" mark on advertising to show they're...er...proudly south African. The proudly SA logo, is based on the south african flag.

So i guess this is kind of playing on that.

I see how they were trying to be "informal" and "approachable" but including that word "Guys...." was just clunky. Threw me off a bit.

What a piece of shit advertising. Are we trying to do a Charlize Theron rape ad? And even that sucked! Celebrity guilt ads have to be done properly and not a rush job as this obviously was.

REALLY STRONG STUFF
absolutely love the emotional level on which it operates.
most anti-rape ads are nice creative, but never stand a change of having an impact. this one is different.

Bad taste.

Rapists are not to be talked to. They are to be punished.
You don't say "no-no, let's stop this."

Um, what? This ad incriminates all men. "I am not proud to be a South African Man?" Bomb.

I would have cut the speech with this: "How can I be? When every year we rape 500.000 women." The other part is unnecessary.

I think it isn´t THAT bad. Its OK.

I hope that guy is famous in South Africa, that would be better.
