Savanna – It’s Dry But you can spray it.

Well, isn’t this just a hilarious little leak. Spotted first by Life is Savage from the headquarters of Savanna themselves.

Looks like the alcohol brand who’s famous slogan is “it’s dry but you can drink it” have taken their DRY to another level. Savanna deodorant. WHAT!?

Ok, i have a few questions. Number one. Does it smell like apples and lemons? or alcohol? Is it for men or woman? Because demographically woman buy Savanna in bars more often, but men like alcohol more.

Also. It’s dry, but you can DRINK it – now get’s associated with sweat? Eww Savanna, ewww.

Imagine other beers jump on board.

Hunters Dry – well that’s probably affiliated with Axe… gettit? Coz Hunters use axes to kill the big bad wolf. Har dee har.

Black Label – Black like me?

Castle Lager – Smell like a prince?

Amstel – well… I’m running out of ideas here.

Perhaps Savanna just got too drunk and thought this would be a good idea? STOP SAVANNA, there are lot’s of people with “i love whats-her-name” tatoos who can vouch for the stupidity of drunk decisions. However. It does show the brand has a sense of humour.

But we knew that already.

Savanna's respose when cricket captain, Graeme Smith announced his engagement. Classic!

As a teen I used to collect their magazine adverts and stick ’em on my bedroom wall. Thus further honing my comedic brain… and now I’m a comedian… and Savanna’s a beauty product producer? How times change.

*Savanna. It’s dry but you really shouldn’t sniff it.*

Stick to Comedy and I’ll stick to Drinking your alcohol.

That’s symbiosis. Biology high five!


Nice one Savanna. check out their reveal here

Winter Blues? Get PINK.

So it’s that time of year, Capetonians have all taken up jogging again. Not to get their abs and butts ready for the Clifton catwalk, but to get out of the rain. Jogging from their cars to their offices to escape the winter misery of rain. Ah, for the next three months we are forced indoors and repeat the mantra that ‘We love Cape Town’ over and over again. (lest we forget, when looking out the window at the lack of blue sky and horizontal rain drops)

But, shiny happy people. I ask you to revel in the knowledge that something warm and luxurious has arrived from the islands.

Something that you can drink. Oh yes, I have your attention now.

Step away from your mundane desk in your mind, and allow me to paint you a scene. Picture, in your mind – if you will – an island. You are on that island. Picture the peacock colour of the water, shimmering, shifting tones of blue rolling infinitely out to meet a horizontal strip of blue sky. Throw some picturesque cumulonimbus clouds into that sky. Big fluffy, white, friendly ones. Look above you – there’s a palm tree (of course there is) it’s casting fronds of shade over your toned, tanned, sunbaked body. Look at your feet. They are digging into the softest, baby-powder like sand, with every wiggle the office and the stress of winter skies melts away, feel it between your toes. Listen to the gentle lap of the waves and the cooing of pigeons in the trees nearby. Lick the salty-air off your lips. Now, one more detail is needed to perfect any island fantasy. A cocktail. Picture a cocktail in your hand. What colour is that cocktail? My made up statistics say that 99% of beach cocktail drinks visualised in hypothetical situations are pink. Of course they are. Blue skies, Pink drinks. It’s logical. It makes sense. Just go with it. It’s rum. You like that. It tastes of vanilla and spices. You like that even more.

Peace, Freedom and Harmony.

Now, back to reality, you’re still at your desk. You’re still just reading this. But what if I were to tell you that the wonderful people of Mauritius have managed to bottle all of that for you. And they made it pink. It’d make me very happy if someone told me that. Which is what happened, because they did. And that’s what I’m saying to you – because it’s true. It’s called Pink Pigeon Rum. Made and bottled in Mauritius. And it’s about to do great things in South Africa. Winter just got a whole lot warmer

In slick stylish packaging, with the words Peace, Freedom & Harmony on a pink ring around the neck – what’s not to love? If “what the bleep do we know” taught me anything, it’s that writing positive words on liquid can change the liquid to beautiful, positive crystals. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about – click here) So, not only will it taste like the islands, but you will be ingesting the concepts of Peace Freedom and Harmony with every sip. Now that’s something ALL of South Africa can do with more of. Can we maybe spike Malema’s water jug? Perhaps then he’ll stop with his current top 10 singing faves and start humming John Lennon’s Harmonius hits…*wink*… Just Imagine.

I’m excited to get pink and fluffy…

*that’s what she said! High-pink&fluffy-flinging-flanging-five!*
