A 19-second clip of a lady falling down an escalator has the country howling. In the video, the well-dressed lady attempts to step on the moving staircase but quickly loses her balance and does a mini-backflip.

South Africans are trying to figure out what in the world caused her to trip. Some think it could be her long dress while others think it could be gravity working against her. The best part you ask? A security guard ran to her rescue and was taken up the escalator in the most dramatic way.

In other news sure to tickle your funny bone, Briefly News reported that after Kanye West (now Ye) went viral for his peculiar hairstyle, Rumani, aka 'The Cleaner', decided to give President Cyril Ramaphosa the same treatment.

The Cleaner shared an image of his latest Photoshop work to Twitter and had Mzansi laughing their socks off.

The image of Ye with patches of his hair missing was the talk of the town since it was shared online but seeing one of our own with the same look really brought things home. Although a few people were unimpressed, the majority could not handle how funny Ramaphosa looked.
