Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A group of foreigners whose nationalities are yet to be known has come out with their own version of the viral Ghanaian pallbearers in a video that's beginning to go viral.
From the video sighted by YEN.com.gh, on Facebook, the light-skinned men purely imitated the Ghanaians to the mark, as they portrayed the exact moves and steps in the same sequence.
It is also clear that the video of the foreigners is beginning to gain traction and has started being used in many funeral memes around the globe as it was even used in an ad by a company as seen in the cited footage.
See video below:
Perhaps the main difference would be that the foreigners did not use an actual casket in the particular video.
In addition, the footage was taken without any actual funeral gathering or procession, unlike what has been seen in the videos of the original pallbearers.
Many people have been reacting to the video including a gentleman named Meek Vilis who has called on the Ghanaian group to sue these foreigners:
Samuel Kwasi Ahli quickly refuted the call for suit with a hilarious analogy:
It is not fully confirmed whether the foreign pallbearers obtained permission from the Ghanaians or not.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Ghanaian group of pallbearers who have become a worldwide sensation on social media in many funeral memes has spoken about the group's motivation.
Benjamin Aidoo was interviewed by the BBC in a video sighted by YEN.com.gh in which it was revealed that the group has about 100 employees who work under Benjamin.
According to Benjamin, the group gets clients from different locations requesting for their performance at the funerals of their beloved relatives.
