Normally I don't take flyers but the young man looked fatigued and I took pity on him, glad I did as the flyer gave me some amusement as I wend my way to the audition.
It seems that Mr. Madiba was gifted from birth with special powers and is able to fight off black magic (by using magic I presume?), disarm voodoo, eradicate sexual impotency, enable business transactions, exams and court cases (a fantastic collection of events) to go very well indeed. Never mind his superhuman abilities to split up unwanted relationships and gambling.
One's mind is drawn to the fact that if he actually had all these powers then perhaps he would turn them to greater use, like ending poverty, war or Pig AIDS but no, breaking up unwanted relationships is his area of expertise.
A brief spell of Googling Mr. Madiba led me to this wonderful discovery, where the Advertising Standards Authority have ruled on the fantastic claims he makes. I don't know what is funnier, that some poor soul felt the urge to take him to the ASA after he didn't remove the voodoo spell on them, or the wording of the ASA report, which includes this chestnut:
On a different note all together, you'll all be glad to know that President Obama thinks that waterboarding is torture and that it was a mistake to use it.
1. objected to the claims that the advertisers could break spells, get back a partner who had run away and help somebody suffering from black magic, because she believed that they exploited the vulnerable;
2. challenged whether the claims could be substantiated; and
3. objected that the references to health, asthma and impotency breached the Codes.
How bad were the last guys in charge if this is something that he has to even say and that it makes me feel happy he has said it?
Talk about setting the bar low...
