Conceived by FCB Joburg’s team of Creative Director Greg Cameron, Art Director Kamohelo Morgan and Copywriter Kgaugelo Mokgehle; it was shot under the direction of Executive Creative Director Ahmed Tilly at the Johannesburg & Media Film Services by Boufant and Hungry Films.
“Our new TVC deftly demonstrates that the Smokin’ BBQ Triple Decker® is guaranteed to bring joy to any get together, even one where faces are lit up by cell phone screens,” explained Marketing Executive Toni Joubert.
“The Catch-Up shows four friends conversing face-to-face once their Smokin’ BBQ Triple Decker® arrives instead of posing, posting and surfing … but not before they’ve snapped a shot of the smoking hot meal to share on social media,” she quipped.
