A video of a group of young men demonstrating the “special powers” of Woolworths water has gone viral.
Speaking in IsiZulu, the group of guys are holding bottled water from the upmarket retailer and are chatting about how they’ve heard it can work magic.
“S’phethe amanzi ase Woolworths bafethu, sphethe amanzi ase Woolworths. K’thiwa ane power.” Roughly translated, it means: “We’re drinking Woolworths water, we hear it has special powers.”
In a hilarious twist, one swig of the water has the guys speaking English – with an added ‘boytjie’ accent.
These guys win 2019 ! I'm not asking I'm telling you !! Its exquisite !!! The vital points of communication 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/Bd8QrlkDEC
