Video Banned! The Fish and Chip Co Shabba’s Value Meal Advert

“Oh Zuzulicious, we’re having fish and chips from Shabba today.”

“Eat up honey bunch, there is a lot of good food here. It’s from the Fish and Chip Company. There are many of you in this house, at only R25 even Pravin will approve this.”

SABC banned the commercial because it was “degrading to the President”.

  1. Media reform is needed in South Africa. Some intervention needs to be made. Banning of adverts and certain news worthy material not being aired in favour of individuals will soon creep in.
    The media plays such a role in moulding society however adverts offer a lighter outlook and offer humour to the bleak reality! Banning an advert because it seems as though its an insult to the President is utter rubbish. How many Presidents before him have gone through such? What makes him ‘special’? Its a huge fuss over nothing really, its humour! Under his leadership human rights which weigh more than the rights his are being infringed daily!
