So sad for Soli

May 22, 2007 at 8:06 am (advertising)

Is it just me or is Soli Philander stretching himself a bit thin with all the ads he’s doing? And hello, a little less overkill would do wonders for credibility.
I happen to like Soli and think he’s a really nice guy. I’ve met him a few times and he really is sweet but someone should tell him that if you’re appearing in several ads with the same distinctive dramatic flair you’re not making a point about anything.
Take the Vodacom guy. You don’t see him hanging in other ads whether it’s about Blueteeth or not. Or the Quentin Chong looking his yummy self in anything other than the Shut-up-Bob ad (Getz).
I’m sure making the extra wad of cash is good for the funny guy’s wallet but some things are just not worth it. Just ask Noeleen…

    Hai Jinne,
    My father doesn’t like Soli either, though I’ll have to get back to you on what his reasons are.
    I see he also has an agony aunt column in Rapport.
    Jirrlikheid, what next?

    I didn’t even know about the Rapport column! Nee wat, hy’s ‘n bietjie van a media-hoer lykkit my.

    Look, it’s one thing to be famous and hone your skills/talent/abilities/funny face-pulling/Timothy Traddle-waddling- but it’s like I always say. I sit and look at people like Nicole Fox and Jeannie D and Soli take over media platforms and I have to ask myself if it’s not a little much.

    Don’t even get me started on Jeannie D. That girl and her girls are flashed way too much and in way to many places. Do you think they even realise how ridiculous it’s getting?

    You might have given me an idea for a post

    Well that’s pretty cool. Can’t wait to read it.
