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?!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everybody!

The year is off to an interesting start with lots of exciting things to think about.

People are loving or loving to hate the new Facebook timeline.

Google+ is fast gaining popularity with some people forecasting that it will have more than 400 million users by the end of 2012.

We all got the iPad2 for christmas 2011 and now there’s talk of iPad 3 and iPad 4.

Toshiba has launched the world’s thinnest 10 inch tablet .

And , if this works as advertised, you will soon need only water to recharge all your devices!

I’m also excited about the footage I took with my Samsung Galaxy Ace. I edited it in iMovie.

What cool tech stuff are you excited about in 2012?
