Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield asks a branding and advertising expert to share with him the week’s advertising “heroes” and “zeroes”.

This week, Sizakele Marutlulle (Marutlulle and Co) critiqued a truly inspiring new ad by Nike, featuring legend-of-legends Serena Williams.

She gave it a resounding “hero” rating.

Watch the ad below, prepare to feel inspired!

Marutlulle hates the SAB advertisement for 1 litre Castles and its promise “for all types of bru”.

SAB gets a “zero”.
