50 of the Best #Braaimovies Tweets for National Braai Day


Today is Heritage day in South Africa. Since 2005 this has also been the day when South Africans celebrate National Braai Day. Nowadays the National Braai Day initiative is referred to as Braai 4 Heritage. An official song was also released last year to make South Africans more aware of this initiative. The song was entitled “Our Heritage” and was performed by Die Heuwels Fantasties, HHP and the Soweto Gospel Choir.

I’m sure that there are plenty of South Africans having a braai today to celebrate their heritage. Last night I saw some brilliant #Braaimovies tweets on the micro-blogging service Twitter. I’ve decided to post 50 of the best ones I saw instead of making a list for Follow Friday this week. I’m sure you’ll find some of these humorous.

There was a ton more of these last night on Twitter. I would not be surprised if #Braaimovies became one of the trending topics on Twitter. These tweets are proof that creativity is alive and well in South Africa. It also proves that the braai is a South African tradition that is conducted by all ethnic groups in the country. If you saw better ones last night or you are seeing better ones today on Twitter, please comment on this post. And before I forget, have a splendid Braai Day 2010! Feel free to check out the other posts in the Technology category on Running Wolf’s Rant.


  1. Privileged to make the list! My own fav was “There’s something about Marinade”

    Btw, did you check out #braailyrics ?

  2. Freakin awesome!!! Glad to see my name on your list dude. I had so much fun with #braaimovies last night… caused a lot of laughs. I enjoyed seeing more than 1 of ‘mine’ on your list, even though someone else seems to have got it out there too. My wife loved “lambshank redemption”, which didnt make the list… but choosing 50 must have been hell so she’s happy to forgive you for not including it:-) Keep up the good work and thanks again for the mention. Lets connect on twitter…@GrantNewton007

    I’m in Costa Rica and missing out on braai day big time, so this made my day.

    My contribution was Lambshank Redemption.

  5. Thanx for compiling a list of the best! There is just too many #braaimovies floating around to keep up.

    Then i must just also give it to @festaans who thought out ‘The Braai Identity’, ‘The Braai Supremacy’, and ‘The Braai Ultimatum’ about an hour before @TarrynHarbour.

    My personal favourites:
    Vleis Ventura – (can’t figure out who posted it first, but people realy cracked themselves up over it!)
    Mary Tjoppins @festaans
