A video that shows the moment a group of gun-toting thugs storm an unknown private school in Johannesburg before sticking it up has been doing the rounds on social media for the better part of Wednesday.
Briefly News reported that the video was shared on Twitter by anti-crime activist Yusuf Ambramjee. The 54-second clip garnered more than 286 000 views as South Africans recoiled to the incident in fear.
But fear is far from being the only emotion that could be deduced as locals processed the scenes that played out. It comes as former 5 FM radio personality and local podcast funny man Sol Phenduka cooked up a hilarious response to the chilling video.

Puns flood the timeline

Mac G bemoans poster boy status amid rising criticism
In other news, Briefly News previously reported that while he has become a local podcast hero to some, to others, Mac G's platform is the symbol of everything wrong in this country.
The former radio presenter turned YouTuber, whose Podcast and Chill with Mac G channel has in recent times reached unimaginable infamy in Mzansi for the "raw and unfiltered" manner with which it's presented, has cooked up a scathing response for his critics.
According to ZAlebs, there is growing backlash against the podcast after a series of controversial episodes, including the most recent one featuring TV presenter Jub Jub, in which the latter spilt the beans on his and Amanda du-Pont's then "saucy relationship".
Mac G has since come out guns blazing, notably telling his critics that the show is here to stay despite all the loud criticism against it from 'Black Twitter' and disingenuous female celebrities such as Minnie Dlamini-Jones and du-Pont, both of whom have called for its scrapping after labelling it as misogynistic.
