Heat South Africa, 18 September 2014

Heat - 18 September 2014

Is Heat South Africa now selling advertising on the cover…!? Seem’s like it, as “Brought to you by Tropika” is punted on the cover, in reference to the “bikini-off” story which is their cover story…

Tropika is really all over this article (and cover story)! I’ve included the above example, but also a snippet of the following pages to show the Tropika banner ads that appear at the bottom of 4 page following the above!

This doesn’t sit right with me completely, if I have to be honest… But hey, that’s just me.

  3. Maybe I’m being silly, but I don’t understand what it is that doesn’t “sit right” with you? Magazines regularly have advertising… how is this at all alarming when Tropika is clearly doing a give-away in the magazine (and a pretty awesome one, at that)? Plus there’s the fact that it’s all about bikini bodies and the competition is a cruise to an island – makes perfect sense if you ask me.
    What doesn’t “sit right” with me is your obvious bias against heat!
