Nando Goes Commando

Nando’s Chicken Restaurants in the U.K. found a breakthrough means to espress the chain’s addictive qualities. They cast a “working” mom as a poultry addict in need of a nicotine-like patch to assuage her hunger pangs. But the patch got in the way of her work duties, so she and her cute little family had to actually show up at Nando’s for a meal.
For this campaign to really hit home, there needs to be a point-of-sale display featuring this pole-dancing mom.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.


  1. Her accent sound Australian, not British. Am I wrong?

  2. Indeed this is an ad from Australia, not the UK. It’s causing an uproar and lots of complaints to the Advertising Standards Bureau. But the Board has decided not to ban it, noting it’s M rating keeping the ad out of childrens broadcasting times.
