This week, Rice critiqued the new Netflorist spokesperson “Bra Gift”, who replaces the beloved/hated character “Harold”.
…We chose Tsotsitaal [for Bra Gift]… It’s the unofficial 12th language of South Africa… the language has become widespread and, because it is spoken daily by the majority of South Africans, it has a vast cultural appeal across the country…— Nhlanhla Ngcobo, copywriter - FCB
Rice gave Bra Gift a “hero” rating.
