- A rather peculiar news broadcast has left many South Africans scratching their heads in confusion
- The broadcast showed a masked man in what seems to be a Halloween costume approaching a news anchor on air
- The masked man walks around the news anchor with his fake knife in the air, pretending to hit the visibly uncomfortable anchor
A weird news broadcast by eNCA has left South Africans asking questions. In the broadcast, the news anchor can be seen dressed professionally while reading the news. Before long, a person in a Halloween costume walks up.
The unknown person, clad in a mask and dressed in all black, pulls out what looks to be a fake knife. He walks around the news anchor raising the knife and then pushing it towards the anchor without doing much.
The news anchor is visibly uncomfortable and continuously moves out of the masked man's way. The video was shared to Twitter by @Afrika___N and even gained a reply from Mmusi Maimane.
Take a look at the video below:
Take a look at some of the responses to the video below:
"Who thought this was a great idea? Because wow. I can't believe the technical director approved of this. Yhiii."
@ManelisiKetse responded with:
"I just saw that nam... I need to know what the guy is doing and why he's doing it!!"
"Bruh I was watching hoping somebody would upload this. CRINGEY."
"Bro this is the most cringy thing I've seen in a while. Tjeerrr I couldn't even finish the clip."
In other weird news making headlines, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a man who shared a pic of him defrosting meat in his bath. South African people love a good serving of meat and that's one thing many of us can agree on.
What we seemingly cannot agree on, is how we prepare our meat. This was proven after a local man shared a picture of the meat he was defrosting in his bathtub. @lindz_malindz recently took to Twitter to share a picture of what some considered an innovative idea - defrosting meat in a bathtub that looked too large to fit into a microwave.
He then asked his followers if he was the only one who resorted to those measures when it came to defrosting their meat. Twitter users, however, seemed very distracted by the candles that had created a romantic ambience for the meat that was defrosting in the bathtub. Confused Mzansians took to the comment section to ask what purpose the lit candles were serving in the entire process.
