*Ghana’s popular dancing pallbearers have shared a video thanking “all the doctors in the world” amid their second wave of viral fame during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pallbearers first went viral back in 2017, after BBC Africa shared footage of their joyous choreography while carrying coffins, an option offered to families who prefer the service be less doom and gloom, and more celebratory. They’re currently enjoying a viral resurgence amid the coronavirus pandemic through various dark-humored memes.
The group now takes advantage of the returned spotlight by sharing a message about the pandemic. In the video, shared on social media by leader Benjamin Aidoo, they thank “all the doctors in the world,” adding, “You are working hard and taking care of everyone.”
