South Africans have the amazing ability to find the funny side of any event. They proved this to be true after Twitter user @ManuRams shared a clip of a disastrous event that happened at a local petrol station.
In the clip, a Quantum taxi suddenly catches alight, which sparks a number of things. A number of petrol attendants do their best to control the flames, resulting in one of them also catching alight and running away from the flaming vehicle.
Meanwhile, a man who was fixing his Citi Golf right next to the flaming taxi can be seen literally using one hand to pull the car away from danger. On the other hand, customers can be scurrying away from the disastrous scene in all directions.
Twitter users who could not believe their eyes about all that was happening in the clip could not help but crack a few jokes at the unfortunate situation the workers and customers at the petrol station found themselves in.
Read some of their thoughts below.
"That man moved a whole Citi Golf using only his right hand... How, I can't even push a Uno with both my hands."
"The one who came rushing from the left to put out the fire and made it worse and ran off with flames all over him."
"He banna and then? Wait. Start the movie again. How did the fire start?"
In other baffling Briefly.co.za news, a rather peculiar video of a group of men pulling a large snake out of a bush has made its way onto social media. The 30-second clip was shared to Twitter by @BlackLwendo recently and South Africans are kind-of shook.
Many tweeps shared jokes while others were concerned about the men handling the large snake in the way they did. The short video has already gained over 11 000 views on the social networking site.
Although the snake was massive and powerful, it did not attempt to attack anyone of the people who were handling it. It chose to slither back into the bush it came from without harming those around it.
