From the solemn act of carrying dead bodies to their final resting place, the famous ‘Otafrija’ dancing pallbearers have turned it into a performance that has attracted worldwide recognition and has become a sight for fun in a world ravaged by a devastating pandemic.
As Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok continue to buzz with their videos, there appears to be no end in sight for just how far these pallbearers will go as the latest person to feature them in a video is the World’s most powerful man, US President Donald Trump.
President Trump used the video of the pallbearers to suggest that his opponent, Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden’s political career is set to come to an end with elections set for November.
The popularity of the dancing pallbearers who are based in the coastal town of Prampram has transcended mind-blowing proportions especially in the period of this pandemic.
Having featured on billboards in Brazil, and having their signature electronic music tune being used as sirens in Spain, it appears the group is about to have their worth shoot up astronomically in the post-COVID era.
