Etisalat hit the headlines back in Mark 2014 when it launched its viral video: “Can You Hear Me Now?”.
The clip is only 1:19 long but became a big hit in Nigeria, racking up nearly 350,000 views on the Etisalat YouTube channel!
The purpose of the video was to promote Etisalat’s mobile phone packages in Nigeria. The clip starts with the following conversation between two Nigerians:
“So you switched to Etisalat?”
“Yes, it’s been fantastic. You should try”
“I’m already on the biggest and best network. The quality is superb”
Then the LOL action really begins. The guy who says his network is the best tries desperately to find reception, diving into toilets and climbing up telecoms towers in the process.
I guess we all know the daily struggle to find reception and yes, even I end up saying “can you hear me now?” far too many times a day.
If you found this clip funny, then you might enjoy the following piece we did on Tatafo’s “delivery” of Jim Lyke.
