Teachers from an Afrikaans medium school in Pretoria last year surprised pupils at their sports day with a dance to the song called the “Samsara.”
Briefly.co.za gathers from a report on popular, Good Things Guy blog, that when news about the video hit their offices they found they had been caught napping and had to resort to google to find out about the craze.
According to goodthingsguy.com, the dance, which they hadn’t known too much about before, proved to be very popular and had become something of an internet craze.
The dance which involves clapping and then pulling a move similar to that of Usain Bolt has been dubbed the “Kempton Clap” on YouTube, where many videos of South Africans have been shared online.
The teachers from the school, Laerskool Danie Malan, did the dance on their sports day back in 2017, performing the moves to the song, a Euro-house number named “Samsara” by Tungevaag & Rabaan.
According to the blog site, the original song was launched in 2015 but gained increased popularity last year.
General response to the sharing of the video online saw many people loving the teachers dance, with many asking if they will be showing a repeat performance at this year’s sports day.
