Video of the Week: Deep Fried Man – ANC will make you Junk, Junk!

By Daily Maverick Staff Reporter 17 May 2017

Ah, South Africa. The only way we can really deal with our kakistocracy (an actual word describing our situation, by the way) is to laugh at ourselves – and we are never short of material. By STAFF REPORTER.

With the South African economy going to hell in a handcart and seemingly no positive news anywhere, it might be a cold-sweat type of laugh in the foetal position, but whatever works, right?

Luckily for all of us, there are some funny people in our country. And this video – a parody of Kris Kross’s classic Jump starring the Atul and Ajay Gupta – is proof of that, because everyone loves a catchy parody, right?

Warning: you’ll be singing this for the rest of the day. DM
