MTN "Space"

MTN Global’s latest brand commercial tells the story of a little boy who discovers, via MTN’s world class internet, that it is very simple to build a homemade radio that will allow him to actually speak to an astronaut in space.

He tries and fails and tries again, using the New World of MTN to embark on a journey of discovery that takes a rather unexpected turn. Because that’s the thing about discovery, there’s always more to discover.
