The Car Guard Song

Last year Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues set the country alight with their anthem for Braai Day. Yesterday they released a song about yet another South African insitution—the ubiquitous car guard.

Filmed near parking spaces next to the local Spar in Vredehoek and sung in the same style as “Love The Way You Lie” by Eminem, Watts tells us about the life and often thankless job of a car guard. Some people give R2 while others give excuses, and Watts is about to hang up his high visibility vest when the car guard king arrives, dropping R5 coins and a whole lot of sage advice. Check out The Car Guard Song below.

People have polarized opinions about car guards. What are your thoughts—do you pay them for the protecting your car or do you leg it before they get there?
