In some of their films, Schuster and Ntombela, have for years supported the Springboks from songs to cameo appearances of the team’s gear in some productions.
It is also evidenced by the now-popular, “Hie’ Kommie Bokke”, which can be seen as a war cry that is synonymous with the pair.
At the time of airing this ad, the country is gripped by Rugby World Cup fever and the Springboks are punted as one of the favourites to be crowned champions.
The commercial’s nostalgic approach with South African favourites; a braai, snacks and beer on rugby day, plays well into the country’s love of sport and a good old laugh.
The World Sports Betting ad reminds South Africans to place their bets.
