Johannesburg - The SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on Wednesday revealed its coverage plans for rugby's ultimate prize.

Featured in a TV advert, which aims to get the nation behind the Springboks as they go in search of a third Rugby World Cup title next month, are socialite Khanyi Mbau, Springbok coach Peter de Villiers' moustache, as well as some of his gaffes.

The preview of the campaign, at the SABC's Johannesburg headquarters, had all those present, including the reporters, in fits of laughter as traditional jersey vendors were depicted selling moustaches, or "snorre" on street corners.

A braai and a "white trash" couple "blinged" to the hilt in green-and-gold also featured.

There were no digitally-enhanced mythological creatures attacking South Africa's out-of-form players in an imaginary battle - some people had complained about Bryan Habana being chased by a rooster-like figure in a SuperSport advert.
