The blonde, the cheetah and the Golf (and other TV-ads)

September 27, 2009 in Sonder kategorie

I love advertising: the concepts, the visuals, the witty copy. I think “Met Eish, ja” did more for nationbuilding in our country than at least one term of a certain past prez.

My current favourite ads are M-Net’s Tooth Fairy- and Sandman-ads. And, of course, who in SA isn’t touched by the VW Golf ad with Lucky the cheetah?

I was fortunate enough to recently visit the two “models” of said VW-ad for the purposes of an article. (Can’t tell too much without compromising my article.) But I can assure you it is a lovely story, with lovely pics. The girl in the ad is Marlice van Vuuren from N/a’an ku sê, a farm about 50 kms from Windhoek in Namibia. And the cheetah, of course, is Lucky, one of several cheetahs rescued by Marlice and her husband Rudi.

N/a’an ku sê is an experience and a half. And an example of fresh thinking when it comes to wildlife rehabilitation, human upliftment, eco-tourism and running an non-profit organisation. Read more at If you can, go and visit!!

Here I am with one of the other cheetahs of N/a’an ku sê.

  1. Generally, I do not pay much attention to TV, nevermind TV adds, but yes: The cheetah with the blonde girl is very good.

  2. I suppose it’s because I’m a journalist. Ons is baie nuuskierig, en ek wonder altyd oor die kreatiewe proses agter iets wat so baie aandag trek.
