Former general secretary of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), Zwelinzima Vavi, shared a short video clip illustrating a fleet of fancy sports cars driving through a township.
Onlookers can be heard in the background as they watch the convoy in disbelief.
The staggering array of lavish cars seems to go on forever and the video has been viewed 146 000 times.
Briefly.co.za understands the video was shot somewhere on the East Rand.
Tweeps soon questioned the identity of the car owners and how they acquired their wealth.
There were a few comments of praise but many slated the display as they suspected the assets to have been acquired through illicit means.
Twitter user, Mr T, questioned the criticism and perception of many South Africans.
The video seemed to have a polarising effect as South Africans were divided on the wisdom of the purchases.
Eventually, twitter user, Gift Mkhabela, shed more light on the background of the video.
In the end, South Africans could agree on one thing – the hilarious commentator.
