Jinger Jack is a Cape Town-based handbag company that offers one of the largest selections of genuine leather womens handbags in South Africa. The designs are functional and range from classic to joyful. The bags are known for their metal hardware, leather details and trademark turquoise cotton twill lining.
This is Jinger Jack’s first commercial film ever, featuring South Africa born Hollywood actor Greg Kriek, model and actor Celé Du Plessis and Jinger Jack’s famous everyday bag ‘Little Jack’. Shot and directed by upcoming talent Thomas Sandell who makes his debut in the fashion industry with this production.
The Story: Greg takes Celé on a fun night out in Cape Town. The next morning she gets irritated waking up all alone and realizing her favorite Jinger Jack bag is stained and scratched. On the way to the beach to get some me-time, she discovers a note from Greg ‘Thanks for the great night’. She misinterprets the message and gets so angry that she throws the bag away.
Greg, with good intentions and a similar temperament as Celé, returns with breakfast in hand and only to find she has left and thrown the bag in the trash. He desperately wants to see her again, hoping to get the misunderstanding clarified and the relationship restored. He rushes off with the bag, gets it polished and cleaned using his shirt. He surprises her at Camps Bay beach with the bag that looks as good as new, thanks to Jinger Jack’s leather with healing power.
