Look what popped into my Facebook feed the other day. An ensemble, no - an omnibus of South African advs from 1988.
With such awesomely bland jingles like:
Sometimes you need a little Finesse! Sometimes you need a lot.
But the best? Is the Morkels lady. Obviously. When people think back to 80s South Africa they think:
In all seriousness, the Morkels Lady. She's wearing a purple meringue, a red-rinsed perm and is advertising a giant chest freezer for two hundred ront.
I found out her name. It's Trudy Taljaard. She passed away two years ago from cancer apparently. (RIP).
Showing the Brit these ads, as the cornerstone of my upbringing - at least when I was 7-8 years old - brought back a surge of nostalgia.
