Well, we do and it's so great we just had to do a throwback about them. Three 'boer seuns' made headlines when a video went viral of them jamming to Brenda Fassie's Vulindlela.

The clip by AfrikaansMemes was posted to Johan Coffee’s Facebook page, and it soon received a lot of attention from social media users.

Translated to English, the meme read, "Us: We’re just going to have a quiet weekend on the farm", followed by "Also us".

The video was seen over 1.5 million times on Facebook and it was shared by 32 000 social media users.

And, by looking at the comments it was evident South Africans thought the video was a breath of fresh air in a country marked with racial issues.

"That’s hilarious wish I could go back to that weekend with you two gems", Mish Ropertz wrote.

One social media user commented there's never a quiet weekend on a farm, while others shared how much they laughed watching the video.

Anja Theron wrote: "Loving it that is so me and my friend every weekend".
