Blacktop Live Rally – Random High Five 2

The guys on the Black Top Live Rally, Powered by Ford have sent me their latest *high five*

Peter from TopCar was brave enough to do the Blacktop Rally in a KTM X-Bow. For those who don’t know (or can’t tell,) it doesn’t have a roof, windshield or anything else really besides an engine, wheels and two seats wrapped in a carbon fiber shell.

So when rain hit during the 500-odd km journey from Bloem to East London today, it’s no surprise a high-five was in order after the ordeal was over…

What crazy dudes.

There’s a video of the X-Bow on blacktoplive.co.za #BlackTopLive

WIN with TomTom Navigation:

Because the Black Top Rally is such a WIN of a moment –  They have assured me that they will be throwing up lots of random high fives.

Over the next week, up till the 4th May – They will be sending me a “random high five” from the road every day… and have collaborated with the awesome people at TomTom to give one of YOU a free TomTom.

All you have to do is TWEET ME a photo of an epic random high five with the hashtag #BlackTopLive (so we can find it) and we’ll choose the best one. 

Check back here daily to see the Random High Five of the BlackTopLive rally, and I’ll be putting up the best submissions from you guys too.

Competition ends on 4th May 2012.

Get high fiving… and let TomTom help your palms find one another.

Win with High-Fives and Blacktop Live Rally

It’s no secret that only winners high five. Even if you’re a loser – when you high-five you feel like a winner. #fact

Lose a race, throw up a high five, and you become a winner. The guys on the Black Top Live Rally, Powered by Ford are obviously winners… so they will be high fiving all the way.

Naturally, then, it makes sense that YOU should use random high fives to prove you’re a winner and if you do… I can make you a LITERAL winner of a TomTom Navigation system…

Me – on the Cover of a Magazine?!

Dear Six Year old Angel… you’re not married, and you have no kids a week away from turning 29. But you ARE on the cover of a magazine! So *High five*


Kulula’s in flight magazine selects a different SA comedian to be the ‘guest editor’ each month and around February this year they contacted me, after a coffee meeting and a few high-fives I was offered the April Cover.

Obviously I moonwalked into my kitchen with glee every morning for weeks!

The editors were excited to finally have a female comic on the cover and immediately implied a sexy bunny for easter or devil (parody on my name) I was loathe to be portrayed as too sexy and pleaded to be a REAL easter bunny. “Or else people may not take me seriously as a comedian.”

Imagine my joy when they pulled out the white, fully length bunny suit. As editor Zane Henry said: “You realise, to be taken more seriously, you are dressed in a full bunny suit looking RIDICULOUS.” I nodded gleefully in between pelvic thrust dance-moves (that suit is FUN to wear)!

All the photos were taken by the ever talented and ever funny, maker of amazing coffee Morne Van Zyl. (who is perhaps more well known for his recent ‘Close up portraits‘ project where he snapped all of the hipsters, who’s whos and nobodies in Cape Town – including me)

We still shot the somewhat sexy devil look which is inside the magazine:

And I got to do two articles – I interviewed Loyiso Bala and Schalk Burger… talking to both of them on the phone may have been more of a high than actually making the cover. Well. It’s a close second.

I also wrote the opening letter from the editor. Which was fun to write, and I see they didn’t edit out any of my offensive and bizarre jokes. So that’s amusing. For me.

I’ll transcribe the letter and articles once April is over for those of you who didn’t catch the magazine.

This also happens to be one of my 29 before 29 “be on the cover of a magazine” check points. So TICK. and *HIGH FIVE*
