- A video depicting a man walking in a strange way has mesmerised South Africans
- Hundreds commented on the video and the debate raged on as to whether the man was intoxicated or suffering from a medical condition
- In the video, the man uncomfortably leans back as he walks
A video has polarised opinions after it was shared on Facebook by South Africa Live.
It features a man walking down the street in a peculiar manner as he leans back with every step.
The caption added to the video was as follows: “Trying to make it through the week like.”
Briefly.co.za gathered the initial view was that the man was intoxicated and struggled to walk as a result.
Nearly 400 people have commented on the post and many poked fun at the man.
However, not everyone was on the same page and others felt that he may not be drunk after all.
Esti Swart commented, “I feel like we've all been there or almost. It's a bit intense. Shame- he needs some water, a cold shower and a bed.”
Shirley Barkhuizen said, “He seems to be well practiced in balancing himself.”
Yolande Fourie added, “That's one small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind.”
John Freemantle responded, “Just like an ostrich walking.”
Some were concerned for the man’s well-being and feared that he may be suffering from an illness.
Minentle Mdu Mazwi said, “From my point of view, this man is not drunk he seem to be suffering from a sickness or disease. If so, we declare healing upon him.”
Cheré Coetzee added, “No way is this guy drunk. There is something else wrong clearly. So sad that we would laugh at someone else's expense rather than help out. Shameful.”
Douglas Cloutier asked, “Are you sure he's drunk? I knew a very good friend who walked just like this due to a Bone problem, he has since passed away. Don't be quick to judge.”
