G Man The AdMan

It’s in your home everyday, during your morning drive to work, on the bus, even inside your pizza box. We sure do love advertising (sure, sometimes it makes us cringe), so hang out with Grant Sithole alongside some of the guys and girls behind the ads you love and sometimes loathe. We’ll chat, we’ll laugh, we’ll interrogate and because this is CliffCentral, it’ll be like no other ad show out there!
