South Africa’s newest viral sensation reveals more details of herself and the incident that earned her popularity.

Footage of the hilarious event went viral in South Africa but the irony is that it took place across the border in Windhoek.

News 24 reported that Marelize is very accident prone in general.

She said, "My mum Heidi says: 'My fok, Marelize' to me almost every day! I fall off things, walk into things. It's insane how clumsy I am.”

Marelize admits the amazing reaction to the video caught her off-guard and it still feels like a dream at times.

The viral craze has even resulted in the launch of a t-shirt with the famous catch phrase.

The comical clip was filmed at Affies Park in Windhoek, Namibia.

The 19-year-old is in the process of learning to ride a bicycle and she felt the rugby field would be a safe venue as any falls would be cushioned by the grass.

Heidi recorded the ride to aid with any areas of improvement thereafter.

However, when she crashed into the post, her mom couldn’t help but say, “My fok, Marelize."

Heidi’s first question to her daughter following the fall was if the bike was okay as it had been borrowed.

Marelize suffered bruises from the fall but it hasn’t deterred her and her riding skills have improved.

She reveals, "The main reason for learning to ride the bicycle is because I will be moving to the Netherlands later this year to work as an au pair, so I will need to get around."

Pierre De Vos shared the video via Facebook initially and the post received a staggering 783 comments thus far.

Andy Ovens said, "Old one ! But a woman driver what is there to be said!!"
Samuel Lazarus added: "It gets funnier each time I watch it."
