- A hilarious parody was created in light of the nationwide lockdown

- South Africans have been admiring the video and appreciated the lighthearted moment during these tense times
A comical video went viral, as it showcased how South Africans are always able to see the funny side - even in times of crisis.
The parody shows a man peeping through the blinds on his window to check if the coast is clear.
He then proceeds to emerge from his front door, but the famous 'Hugo bel die polisie' soundbite starts playing in the background.
Briefly.co.za reported on the video that went viral last year, which earned the soundbite its popularity.
The fact that the man behind this video used the current lockdown situation and combined it with a viral moment unique to Mzansi seems to have struck a chord with social media users.
Since being shared on Thursday by Tyrone Luke Buys, the video has been viewed more than 200 000 times
