Miller Matola, Brand South Africa's CEO, believes that the tie-in commercial (velow) embodies the 'can do' spirit of South African people across various walks of life.
"Through this television commercial, we want to get across the message that Inspiring New Ways is an over-arching country position for South Africa relating to everything we do and what we are including our people, our culture and heritage, tourism, exports, governance and investment and immigration," said Matola.
"Whether it's Baby Jake Matlala proving that he was not too small to become a world champion boxer, or Oyama Matomela becoming a commercial pilot at the age of just 20, or astronomer Simon Ratcliffe who helped to bring the SKA (Square Kilometre Array) project to our country, these people all portray the essential spirit of South Africa and South Africans.
"The people in the commercial have all found ways to get ahead, improve themselves and make a contribution to society. At Brand SA, we want to inspire all South Africans to play a role in shaping the future of our country."
