The Comedy Central EP

Katlego Baaitse directed 3 of 6 music videos for the #ComedyCentralEP. Music and humour were the foundations of the project. In Heritage Month in South Africa, we subverted the usual expectations of our beloved Shweshwe/ African traditional themes in an ad or promo. Comedy Central created a musical playlist that played on South African and pan-African idiosyncrasies. The campaign, on a challenging budget, went viral garnering millions of views, it also won several accolades, finalists and received several features.
