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
