Hippo Insurance company called out for dissing Tlof Tlof loving Katlego Maboe in new advert (VIDEO)


Insurance company Hippo set tongues wagging on social media following the release of their new advert, with many saying it is a direct dig at insurer OUTsurance and Katlego Maboe.

In the advert a man, who is a Katlego lookalike, can be seen discussing ways to save on vehicle cover when he and a female driver are interrupted by a hippo showing them a better quote.

The woman confronts the man and says she could save more money with Hippo, and then proceeds to say “out”.

“Wait, I can find better? R300 better than your quote and you gave me a huge excess and you just had one quote. Out,” says the woman.

“Every car insurer says they can save you money, but that doesn't mean they have the best price or the right cover for you. How do you know if you’re getting the best deal unless you compare?” says Hippo.

While some social media users found the advert funny, others said it was a “blatant exploitation of Katlego's personal pain”.

They called for the advert to be boycotted and reported to the the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA (BCCSA).
