Spoof Zuma, Zille poster causes stir

2012-02-02 10:44

Cape Town - A spoof advert showing puppets of President Jacob Zuma and DA leader Helen Zille in a passionate clinch is the latest mock of the opposition party's youth poster campaign to cause a stir on social network sites.

The poster on comedy show ZANews's Facebook page shows the two staring lovingly into each other’s eyes with Zille’s hand stroking Zuma’s neck.

It carries the slogan, “In our future, you wouldn’t give a shit".

The mock ad comes after the launch of a campaign by the DA youth showing a black woman and a white man in an intimate embrace.

That poster’s slogan read: “In our future you wouldn’t look twice”.

The DA youth's campaign was criticised by the Christian Democratic Party, which called it "shocking".

'Good laugh'

Since the launch of its campaign mock images have appeared across social networking sites showing illustrations that include dogs hugging cats, black horses mounting white horses and lingerie-wearing white domestic workers scrubbing floors.

ZANews released the mock poster on its Facebook page with the message: “So the DA cubs are enjoying our take on their lousy poster? Wait till we take these to the next level.”

Zille said on Twitter that she appreciated the ZANews poster.

“Had a good laugh," she wrote.

“It gave me a good laugh to start the day.”

The poster has attracted dozens of comments and hundreds of “likes”.

"Lol It serve [sic] DA right, be careful what you wish for," one Facebook user wrote.

    Well done!!! Wonder what kind of immoral, sinister, racist points people like CDP, COSATU and general racist nutters will now infer from this spoof... Chill people...

  • Sharon - 2012-02-02 10:56

    The original poster certainly caused a stir, but I think this one is sooo much better!! Loved it. I hope JZ's wives don't get too jealous!

      Kobus - 2012-02-02 13:05

      I intend voting for them and personally I love the new poster and hated the old. The new one is very funny and one cannot help but to laugh at it. The other one lead to some really sick posters (bestiality etc) on the DA's site with a tremendous amount of hate speach which really was not what they had hoped on.

      Godfrey - 2012-02-02 20:45

      Sies! Skande! Come to mind.

  • Jason - 2012-02-02 11:07

      ubhejane - 2012-02-02 12:08

  • Michael - 2012-02-02 11:30

      ubhejane - 2012-02-02 12:13

      Will she be happy to be wife No6? We can ask SARS to build her a new hut at the compound. But she might need a bit a reconstructive surgery to lift some assets. You know our culture?

      Peter - 2012-02-02 13:51

      VERY GOOD ONE UBHEJANE.

  • Assis - 2012-02-02 11:40

    LOL, may many more DA posters roll on! South Africans start at last to develop a common sense of humour.

  • Mike - 2012-02-02 12:23

    I have to admit I almost fell off my chair - witty and funny!

  • russell.molokoane - 2012-02-02 12:31

    That wasn't creative at all.

      Perfume5 - 2012-02-02 12:35

      Really???????

      PointBlank - 2012-02-02 13:05

      Wasn't meant to be creative, the creativity has already been done by the DA, this is called SPOOF... *sigh*

      Peter - 2012-02-02 21:12

      Yawn - @russell

  • Makgoana - 2012-02-02 12:40

  • Jacqui - 2012-02-02 12:47

    DA and Nandos - our SA politics at least gives us all a good laugh and plenty to talk about!! I think we are the only country in the world who is truly capable of laughing at themselves. This is a good thing! I believe it shows maturity.

  • PointBlank - 2012-02-02 13:05

    Ubhejane, what say you now? :)

      Mike - 2012-02-02 15:58
