  1. Working of a guesstimate of R120 million for this campaign (I heard stories that the TVC cost was R9 million on its own) they paid an estimate of R400 per client, wonder how much Virgin spent… Also, because this is Telkom, this is all tax payer money?

  2. you spelt Telkom wrong in the heading

  3. Well this sure puts the c in rap

  4. Yikes, nice spot Voodoo, have fixed. Thanks!!

  5. Nice teaser idea with some cool typography, but I didn’t see any of that in Cape Town, and the TVC doesn’t do it for me. I had no idea this product was aimed at the ‘economically challenged’ until now, I thought Telkom were just jumping on the vernacular band wagon.

  6. Photographer, Michael Polizia? What?
