Leon Schuster : Schuks Tshabalala's Survival Guide To South Africa
Schuks Tshabalala and his friend, Shorty, are commissioned by the 2010 tourism body to produce a movie as a visual guide and aid for foreigners coming to SA for the World Cup.
Shucks Tshabalala is a teacher and tourist guide to a mixed bag of tourists who're taking his survival guide to SA very seriously. Shorty, as usual, is his best friend, aid and conscience. The students include Heinz from Germany, Yoti from Greece, Jean-Pierre from France, Koert from The Netherlands, Rajin from India, Maggie from Ireland and Xing Xang from China, among others. They are genuinely eager to learn about SA, and Schuks and Shorty are only too happy to oblige with a series of hysterical demonstrations of life in SA in their attempt to answer all the questions posed by the potential visitors. Comedic capers range from South Africa’s most famous celebrities being victimised by Tshabalala and other disguised Leon Schuster incarnations, and a full stadium packed with soccer fans, where the controversial Vuvuzela is applied as a tool to test any soccer fan’s enthusiasm to the nth degree.
Nothing and no-one are sacred in this film. Common misperceptions about South Africa, such as lions and elephants walking the streets of Johannesburg, are put to good comedy use, and Leon’s array of new characters keep unsuspecting South Africans on their toes.
Featuring some Bollywood-inspired musical numbers to give Schuks the opportunity to make fun of some of the country’s most powerful and influential people
