- On Thursday, the country took part in the Jerusalema Challenge to celebrate Heritage Day
- However, a group of Saffas could not complete their dance because of a dog
- A video shows the dancers running away after the pooch made his appearance
After President Cyril Ramaphosa called on South Africans to unite and do the Jerusalema Challenge, the internet was flooded with videos of the viral dance.
One group of people was busy filming their challenge when things went sideways. Midway through the dance, an uninvited four-legged guest makes an appearance and sends the dancers running. The dog doesn't appear aggressive but the citizens were not taking any chances. The hilarious incident was caught on video and posted online.
Thenjiwe Khumalo, who goes by the Twitter handle @10GEE_Khumi, shared the video on Twitter and simply captioned it:
"Hayibo lenja! #JerusalemaDanceChallenge."
Take a look at the video below:
The video had South Africans laughing out loud and they gave their two cents' worth on the pooch joining the challenge.
Social media user, @mduKuPhela, commented:
"I love that dog. Fixing the country."
Another tweep, @HandsomeHandson, added:
"The dog was having none of that nonsense."
Twitter user, @GuguStatu, wrote:
"Just wanted to dance along."
