Nando's has hilarious response to Pick n Pay's new 'iNkukhu' advert

Nando's brought the burn when they responded to Pick n Pay's new 'iNkukhu' ad on Twitter.

Last week local retailer, Pick n Pay launched a new chicken range and referred to it as 'iNkukhu' (the isiXhosa and isiZulu word for chicken) in an ad it shared with its following on Twitter.


Fast-food chain, Nando's was quick to respond and naturally Twitter was abuzz with commentary as the tongue-in-cheek remark quickly went viral.



Here are some of our favourite responses to the twar:

I think what PicknPay did wrong was to make their chicken generic. The customer does not know whether they are promoting cooked N'ku'cooked chicken or UN'Nku'cooked chicken ready for the braai, is it free range, there's no benefit, if there had been they might have nailed it!

This work was just plain rubbish. The issue we're missing here is about brands using indigenous language as a sales gimmick.
