Only in Mzansi! SA comedian sets up ‘Pothole FM’ station on a street in Howick

Durban – How many times have you heard or read something and mumbled to yourself "Only in Mzansi?"

Tyre brand Dunlop South Africa is showcasing the funny side of that Mzansi confidence and has gone large with a first of its kind – the first ever radio studio to be set up inside a giant pothole.

The new “Pothole FM” campaign features South African comedian Robby Collins. It was recorded in Howick, KZN, where the uMngeni Local Municipality has been hard at work carrying out much-needed pothole repairs in the aftermath of the KZN floods earlier this year.

“Let’s be honest, potholes aren’t fun. They aren’t fun to drive into, and they aren’t great fun to broadcast in. In fact, we should use all the money we spend on putting up pothole warning signs to actually fill in the potholes.

“Nonetheless, I had a great time shooting with the Dunlop crew who are doing their part to give South Africans some confidence on the road,” Collins said while kneeling inside the 50cm deep pothole during recording,

Contractors ensured the hole was repaired after the recording. CEO of Sumitomo Rubber South Africa, which manufactures Dunlop tyres in Africa, Lubin Ozoux said the “Pothole FM” campaign sets out to showcase the brand’s innovative Dunlop Sure tyre cover. The cover helps South Africans to be as confident on the road as they are off the road.
