IT’S TIME TO LITE’N UP MZANSI WITH #BADNEWSBINGO AND CASTLE LITE

Recently  Castle Lite immersed media and influencers in their lite world by bringing to life their new campaign #BadNewsBingo.

 The event formed part of the brand’s highly entertaining new communication, which was inspired by South Africans’ unique way of using comedy and laughter to off-set the heavy we face so often on a daily basis.

The campaign, which launched a few weeks ago, has already garnered mass social engagement as Castle Lite and #BadNewsBingo hosts Eugene Khoza and Tumi Morake flip the script on the heavy headlines daily.

Castle Lite’s purpose is to bring the lite side of life to the fore,

“We are faced with so much heavy daily, and the news is a huge source of this and recently we have been bombarded with a lot. #BadNewsBingo offers us the opportunity to relieve some of that seriousness through humor, wit and the understanding that we really are all in it together. It’s the understanding that while we may not be able to control all that happens around us, we can control how we react to it, with #BadNewsBingo we can reward the nation for looking on the lite side and finding the silver lining.”

The event took place at one of Joburg’s most dazzling rooftop venues, The Roof Bryanston and was attended by some well-known personalities, including the likes of Anele Papu, Carpo, Don Design and many more.

Tasked with hosting proceedings was none other than radio and television achor and  brilliant newsreader, Thembekile Mrototo. Thembekile got the evening off an electric start with a sprawling monologue in which he brought lite to the recent news happenings, sharing some hilarious social commentary; himself realising the importance of keeping things lite despite his day job. Internationally renowned comedian, creative producer and host Eugene Khoza, whose comedic career has taken him to places like the Sydney Comedy Festival and the New York Comedy Club, was then welcomed onto the stage alongside multi-award-winning actress and comedian, Tumi Morake.

The trio went on to speak on what makes this campaign so unique and why it’s so important to turn to continue to see the humour despite some of the issues we’re confronted with.

Proceedings ended off in style as attendees played a hilarious physical game of #BadNewsBIngo. Where potential, fun headlines (written by Ai technology) are placed on a traditional BINGO Card, and as we cross off each headline we get closer to BINGO. Once we hit BINGO everyone playing gets a chance to Lite’n Up, winning some awesome prizes. This reflects the #BadNewsBingo game Castle Lite is playing on their socials each week, live with the whole of South Africa.

When we hit BINGO, there are more Lite rewards up for grabs! Be sure to continue to watch the socials as we continue to play the game that is sure to Lite’n Up Msanzi, one heavy headline at a time. Because even when we’re losing, YOU could be winning.
