Chicken Licken just launched a new advert for its SoulBites, and we promise you it's one of the best things you will see today.

The hilarious commercial sees local artist, Rasta (real name Lebani Sirenje) - known for his, how do we put this, not-so-accurate portraits of local celebs - applying for a job as a sketch artist at a police station.

What ensues is a ton of hilariously bad sketches of suspects, which results in "an unprecedented number of unsolved crimes".

The advert ends with the words: "Choose your sketch artist wisely," as Rasta's application for the job is rejected.

"It's 2022 and we're back like umqolo with yet another #SoulBites Nugget of Wisdom film to help you survive the year, this time with a surprise nyana! Y'all were never ready shem!" the video was captioned on social media.

Take a look at the commercial below:
