South Africans truly have an ability to get a laugh out of the most dire situations. Last month, tremors rocked parts of Cape Town, making headlines across the country.
Several news agency covered the story and one social media user, identified as Plaasnaar, decided to give South Africans a bit of a chuckle with a fake interview about the earthquake.
The video was shared on Daniel Marven's Twitter account and captioned:
"Remember when Trevor Noah said coloured people are the best storytellers? Well here is a report on the Cape Town earthquake."
The clip shows Plaasnaar hilariously detailing what the earthquake felt like. From demonstrating how everything shook during the tremors to saying, "the beers did not fall," Plaasnaar managed to turn the situation into a comedy skit.
Take a look at the video below:
The clip gathered over 80 000 views and South Africans reacted to Plaasnaar's storytelling abilities.
Twitter user, @LekgoathiSello, commented:
"I love my country, it never disappoints. That pause when he came to the beer part."
Another tweep, @ronaldanele, added:
"This just took me away."
Briefly.co.za previously reported Cape Town residents felt tremors following a report by the US Geological Survey. According to a statement by the US Geological Survey, residents were warned to be extra careful in the next few hours.
The report declared:
"After a magnitude 6.2 offshore earthquake struck at approximately 19:10 local time on 26 September."
However, Professor Andrzej Kijko, believes more quakes are set to follow. The director at the University of Pretoria’s Natural Hazard Centre said that Cape Town could imminently experience yet another earthquake and this one is going to be big.
According to Kijko, the quake will cost the Mother City at least R10 billion. Although he can't say exactly when it will happen, he does believe the strength of the earthquake will rock Cape Town - literally.
