- It’s all in a day’s work for these local petrol jockeys who keep the crowds entertained when they pull in for some petrol
- Spectators videoed the moves of these local petrol attendants and their videos have set social media alight
- In unison, these hard-working, fast-dancing petrol attendants have given drivers more than they bargained for when they stopped in for some fuel
There is not much to laugh about when pulling into a petrol station in South Africa at the moment. The latest increase in the petrol price has motorists weeping.
South Africans, especially the middle to lower class citizens, have been feeling the weight of the higher VAT, so when it was announced there would be a massive petrol price hike, they decided enough was enough.
Tweeps voiced their outrage over this hike on Twitter.
But one petrol station has managed to see drivers leaving with a grin on their faces, and a focus on something other than the lowering of their bank balance as their fill their cars.
This video of Petrol attendants getting funky has spread like wildfire across social media platforms, and reminded us all that there are still happier things to focus on.
Motorists and Tweeps went nuts over the dancing dudes. Some were cynical.
While others really appreciated their style!
It would appear these guys have topped the government with their latest moves. In a recent article Briefly.co.za reported how the government had decided to lend a 'helping' hand amidst the concern of the latest petrol price hike. Social media users expressed how they feel having read the absurd suggestions with much mocking and condemnation.
In another article relating to the petrol increase, we reported how Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane had placed the blame for an increase in the living costs of South Africans squarely with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Our local dancing petrol jockeys have outdone all these people with their simple enjoyment of life and reminded South Africans about some of the magic that is South Africa
