- A video depicting a lady feeling afraid to cross a road has gone viraland it seems a bit over-the-top.
- The woman can be seen struggling with a male companion and refusing to cross the roadway
- The video has over 7 400 views and it seems as usual South Africans are finding it funny with many saying she was just being dramatic and looking for attention
A video of a lady afraid to cross the road is making its rounds on social media. The lady, in a baby pink dress, can be seen being pulled by the arm to cross the road by a male counterpart. She pulls her body weight back to release his grip and eventually hits the ground in a dramatic fall.
The man, who is halfway across the road, returns to her in an attempt to convince her to cross the road. She refuses once again and he picks her up and carries her across whilst she protests and tries to fight her way out of his grip.
The video was posted to Twitter by @BhekaniMlambo and has gained 7 400 views and over 100 likes since it was uploaded. The video has gained varying viewpoints from social media users as some find it funny whilst others believe it is all an act.
Granted there are a few concerned Tweeps, the overall reaction is not something you would expect from a video like this.
Here's what some Saffa tweeps had to say:
"I am laughing because I too struggle with crossing roads, especially wide ones, yet I don't have a phobia."
"These are attention seekers. She just wants attention, that all. No old women can be scared of cars like that. In which country did she grow up where there are no cars?"
In other viral social media news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on an inspiring woman who uses old tyres to create stunning pieces of furniture. The lady, who was only identified by her Twitter handle @niqita11, converts old tyres into breathtaking pieces of furniture.
On Monday, she took to the social media platform to share her designs with other South Africans. The Durban-based woman asked Mzansi to show her support and she shared photos of her products as well as a pic of herself in action.
