Each of the six installations depicted a winning fact submitted by South Africans. Rose and I could not help recollecting some fond childhood memories of many sunny days spent with mouthfuls of Chappies and filling our brains with tons of “Did You Know?” facts.

Do yourself a favour and go watch the other four installations clips: here. I absolutely LOVE these clips!
