No matter how grown up you are, your relationship with your parents will always shape a part of you. We’ve been asking people to share their memories of their fathers for our Old Spice competition. In return for you sharing a sweet memory with us we’ll give you an awesome Old Spice hamper that should have you feeling like this:
Here is this week’s second winner and their story:
I was raised by a single parent, my mom. I used to play at my neighbours. It was a big family and they treated me like their own child. We would play, take little pots and cook and the father from next door would get us vegetables from his garden to help us in our games. He would also give us eggs from his chickens as well. He would make a fire and call his sons and me around and tell us amazing stories and jokes. We would be warm, and sit around the fire with feelings of laughter and joy. Although he was not my biological father he made me feel like his child. My biological father was not around but I had a father next door.
Congrats to Tseki Dikeledi. Thank you for sharing your memory with us. You win an Old Spice hamper and your name will go to the draw for the R5000.
Over the course of running the competition I’ve had to watch a lot of Old Spice commercials and I think I’m in love with with Isiah Mustafah, also known as the Old Spice Guy so it was cool to see him in a telenovella type set up with Fabio:
Funny right? Happy Weekend! Belief in yoursmellf!
If you’d like to share an awesome story about your day before father’s day, email us firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us your story and we could be giving you the R5000 prize as well as an Old Spice hamper. Good luck!
As you know we’re running a competition with Old Spice where we get to re live the warm and fuzzy memories we have with our fathers. Each week, a winner walks away with an Old Spice Hamper full of yum, manly smelling goodies. At the end of the month one reader will win R5000.00 Here is this week’s winner story:
Growing up in a family of boys, I always felt I didn’t have enough of my father’s attention. But as time went on, I learned that he loved us equally. See, my father used to work far away from home and only came back on Fridays. That’s where my love for Friday began (now I love Fridays for different reasons), I always looked forward to seeing him as he always had goodies to give me and my siblings. Like most teenagers, I also had a fair share of disagreements as I started becoming rebellious. He was always stern but me and my being rebellious didn’t help the situation much as we drifted apart from the son/father relationship. Funny enough, through every trouble that I have been in, he was always the one who bailed me out and managed to save me from (sometimes) wrath. But looking back now, I know why he did all he did. His love was and is unconditional. Him being able to let me make my own mistakes and learning from them helped me to become the individual I am today.
Congrats Avhasei! You win an Old Spice hamper and are put forward for the draw. If you would like to win the hamper and the R5000 email us email@example.com and share a memory of your dad. There’s no limit on the amount of words, just make sure you tell us a story about a memory with you dad. Good luck and:
Get it? Believe in your smellf? *crickets* no? Just watch this please:
Jucy Africa and Old spice are running a competition where you email us and tell us a special memory of your father and we send you an Old Spice Hamper plus one lucky reader will win R5000. How easy and is that? Properly awesome.
Here is this weeks winner Tiro’s memory:
I was born in 1992 September 19,the year Mr Mandela got released from jail. The year that marked a new generation for our country. A generation of men that knew the importance of fatherhood and realized that abandoning their children is not the way to go.
My uncle was my father figure. He stepped up and taught me how to go from being a boy to a man. He took it upon himself to support me in everything that I do and kept on pushing me till I got where I am today. His belief in me and his tenacity reminds me what an old inspiring spice he was. This made me realize that,it doesn’t take only the father of the blood to raise a boy child, but any man who has a big heart can do it. I see no difference in calling him my father rather than the biological father I never had.
Well done Tiro. You win an Old Spice hamper.
If you’d like to win an old spice hamper and a shot at the R5000 email us your special memory of your dad to firstname.lastname@example.org Good luck!
JucyAfrica and Old Spice are giving away R 5000 and some cool Old Spice hampers to people who share their favourite memories of their father with us. Each week we’ll publish the coolest stories and give the weekly winner an awesome hamper and the overall winner after a month a R5000 cash prize.
Here is this week’s winner and his memory.
My father was a construction man. For as long as I can remember he would take me to site, especially on weekends. When I grew older we started working together, for a while. We would build superstructures, (ie the concrete structure before they lay the bricks, and finishing touches like window frames, door frames, roof and so on.) All over South Africa we would travel for concrete work. My father was an Old Spice man. But I lost contact with Old Spice as I became a man. Maybe the packaging changed. Maybe there’s just so much choice these days. But then suddenly, one day I remembered his smell and went searching for it. My father had long since died, but I began using Old spice like him. Maybe the bottle has changed, maybe there’s more Old Spice to choose from. But there’s still the ship and the essential smell is unmistakable.
How awesome? Lee wins an Old Spice hamper and may win the R5000 at the end of the month. If you would like to enter to win an Old Spice hamper email win @ jucyafrica. com and share a story about your father. Good luck
What is Old Spice? What type of person wears it? What does it smell like? Let’s start with this commercial that will answer all of that for you:
Hilar right? Old Spice and it’s smell will always remind me of a properly manly man; one who goes to hunt (ok fine, maybe the equivalent of hunting now is working in an office) then comes home and cooks for you then does some of that cheesy stuff I like, like this:
YES PLEASE! Anyway, enough thirst, here’s what it’s all about: Old Spice is an authentic and inherently male brand. It’s been worn by sophisticated men for decades and celebrates its strong heritage while staying fresh and up to date. I imagine it’s worn by the adventure-man, the quintessential gentleman, the nature man, the intellectual man. Here are the 3 types of Old Spice available in South Africa and their wearers:
1. Original Old Spice: Reliable, clean cut gentleman. Always on time, always says the right thing and treats you like gold.
2. Kilimanjaro: Nature man, rugged and manly, lives for adventure and to sweep you off your feet.
3. White Water: For the more modern, metro-sexual man, always well groomed andfashionable, trendy and cool, constantly impressing you.
So, let’s get down to it. We would like to give away R 5000 and some cool Old Spice hampers to people who share their favourite memories of their father with us. We’ll publish the coolest ones, give the weekly winner an awesome hamper and the overall winner after a month a R5000 cash prize. Cool right? Right. The memories of your dad don’t have to be Pulitzer prize type writing, just paint us a picture with your words. Email your submissions to email@example.com using Old Spice as your subject line. Good luck!
