Elgon Cup 28th April, 2012 – Macho Red

Kenya will host the second leg of the Elgon Cup on Saturday, 28th April, 2012 at the RFUEA grounds.

In the first leg hosted by Uganda, the Kenya national mens 15s team went down 19-5 to Uganda Cranes while the Kenya Lionesses lost 15-6 to the Lady Cranes. You can read more about these games here.

Kenya will therefore be coming from behind. The Kenya men’s national team will have to beat Uganda Cranes by more than 14 points, while the Kenya Lionesses will have to beat the Lady Cranes by more than 9 points. Hopefully playing in front of a home crowd will give Kenya the extra boost they need to ensure wins for both teams.

Abedeen Shikhoyi, the Kenya Lionesses captain, will be missing in action this weekend. She sustained a spinal injury during the first leg in Uganda and is currently recuperating in hospital. Join this group to send her your best wishes and get updates on her progress.

Games begin at 1.30pm. See the poster below for more details.

IT IS WAR! And I love it!

Nandos, who you may remember from their Last Dictator Standing video, launched a parody of a Santam ad.

Santam is an insurance company and I love the fact that they not only came up with this incredibly entertaining ad to begin with, but that following the Nandos parody ad, they went on to make a parody ad of their own!

This little war has resulted in great competitive advertising and valuable exposure for both brands and great entertainment for the rest of us. I find myself now thinking about my insurance cover while getting hungry and laughing myself silly.

I love that brands are embracing technology and making it work for them.

You can watch the videos below.

This is the original Santam ad.

This is the Nandos parody ad. Pow!

Then Santam hit back! Pow!Pow!

What do you think? Isn’t this brilliant?!
