Cape Town - What are your 25 reasons to love South Africa?

This is what fast food chain Nando's is asking its fans to reveal in their latest campaign celebrating their 25th birthday.

The first of four TV adverts released as part of the campaign features the Nando's reason #9: We have great athletes.

The video sees a group of car guards racing and dodging obstacles to help a woman get out of her parking spot, as she furiously tries to get in her car before they arrive at her window.

The other reasons are being shared in print adverts and on Pinterest.

The public have an opportunity to win Nando's vouchers by creating their own "25 Reasons" boards and re-pinning their favourite reasons. for more details on how to participate, click here.

The brand also adopted a new slogan as part of their birthday campaign: "25 years and still playing with fire".

Earlier this year, a Nando's TV commercial about xenophobia was banned by the SABC, and DStv, supposedly for being in bad taste. The group, however, defended its position and maintained the commercial merely highlighted the absurdity of xenophobia.

    Although we love Nando's, we stopped going there many years ago after they refused to allow me and my guests to share a bottle of wine with our meal because they are Halaal! So much for a Portuguese chicken meal!!! What a joke!

      "Free Corkage & BYOB" Don't recall seeing that sign at any non "halaal" Nandos neither!

      Its a family restaurant Daffy, and Halaal. The manager was right on both counts. You should have (and probably did) ordered take-away and drunk your wine at home.
