Cape Town - There are things that are truly, and completely unique to South Africa.

Some are weird - like having a designated person show us how to reverse out of a parking space...  Some are wonderful - like having a specially designed road sign to warn travellers of hippos crossing the road.

With all of these weird and wonderful things in SA, insurance company Santam found it important to point out that we also need some crazy coverage to protect us from ourselves!

We need, as they say, "insurance that understands the lay of the land".

Their heart-warming, yet in no means idyllic ad is a perfect depiction of how we, as South Africans,  have become used to the unique ways and practices in our country...

But just because we think nothing extraordinary of a "chop-and-dop" or a "bring-en-braai", does NOT mean that the same can be said for foreigners visiting SA.

What do you think of this ad? Do you think it's putting SA and South Africans in a bad light, or does it make you feel proud of the country, regardless of its flaws?
