First South African online teen series
Fruit flavoured drink, Fanta is excited to bring you a South African first in the form of online teen series – The Fanta Squad! The Fanta Squad YouTube series is a new platform for action-packed, bitesize episodes celebrating teen culture in their very own unique way.
The edgy episodes will be stories created by teens for teens with moments of laughter, intrigue and epic adventure – all accessible on one channel. The Fanta Squad includes Fanta Teen Marketing Director, Thulasizwe Dambuza, affectionately known as ‘Lasizwe’, alongside local actor and comedian Siyabulela Deli better known as ‘TaFire’, adventure vlogger Matthew Menton and TV presenter Katlego Ncala.
The Fanta Squad series is created to encourage youth to express themselves in a fun and interactive way on a platform they are most familiar with. “We gave four dynamic individuals an opportunity to lead the engagement of teens nationwide through Fanta’s new online show,” says Mukundi Munzhelele, Fanta Senior Brand Manager. “We look forward to getting young people involved by bringing their own flavour to the show by sharing their ideas and co-creating some of the upcoming episodes with the Fanta Squad”, adds Munzhelele.
Fanta will be giving everyone the opportunity to add their views on what they think the Fanta Squad’s challenges should be. Fanta Teen Marketing Director, Lasizwe Dambuza said “OMG, we are so excited that Fanta is giving us an opportunity to be ourselves and still have fun whilst interacting with teens everywhere.”
The challenges for the series are quirky and unconventional tasks which will be completed by The Fanta Squad. The episodes will range from the Fanta Squad conquering their inner fears to spending a day as triplets.
The 13-week Fanta Squad show will be live on YouTube with a series of episodes every Thursday, 4pm from the 28th of June – bringing everyone a moment of juicy entertainment. Viewers will have an opportunity to download the shows on the Fanta South Africa YouTube channel to view and share them again and again!
