Content IN BRIEF


- Together with advertising agency Ogilvy Johannesburg, the ANC has produced four commercials that highlight the positive changes ordinary South Africans have experienced since 1994, while acknowledging “there is much more to be done”. Once again Nelson Mandela is prominently mentioned at the beginning of the ad followed by a message from Zuma at the end.

- Hond se Dinges, the new Afrikaans-language South African film from Johan Heyns, made the number six spot in Ster-Kinekor’s Top 8 for the week 20 to 26 March, and the number 10 spot in the Combined Top 10. Meanwhile, new release Marley & Me, a comedy about the worst dog in the world, opened in top spot for that week. It bumped the multiple award-winning Slumdog Millionaire into second spot, followed by Confessions of a Shopoholic. In fourth and fifth spot were Pink Panther 2 and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. (Figures by SAFACT)
