LEON Schuster is at it again. This time the Hier kom die Bokke singer has produced a movie as a visual guide and aid for foreigners coming to South Africa for the World Cup.
Leon and Alfred Ntombela (Shorty) are the main characters in the comedy called Schucks Tshabalala: Guide to South Africa .
Directed by Grey Hofmeyr, the Schucks character was commissioned by the 2010 tourism body to produce the movie.
The comedy is planned for a May 28 release countrywide.
The story is about Schucks Tshabalala, a teacher and tour guide to a mixed bag of tourists who are taking his survival guide to the country very seriously.
Shorty, as usual, is his best friend, assistant 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 eager to learn about South Africa and Schucks and Shorty are only too happy to oblige. What follows is a series of hysterical demonstrations of life in South Africa as they try to answer all the questions posed by potential visitors.
Nothing and no one is sacred in this film. Common miscon ceptions 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.
