Staff at Carnew Mart are the latest to take on the Jerusalema Challenge, which has become a worldwide viral sensation, particularly in recent weeks.
That’s Farming understands that the Co. Wicklow-based business is the first livestock mart in Ireland to release a video of its staff dancing to the beat of the hit South African house track.
Carnew Mart posted a video of its efforts on social media earlier this evening (Saturday, February 13th). Staff can be seen moving and grooving on the rostrum, in the sales yard, office, carpark and ringside.
Various organisations and individuals across the island have been following in Gardaí’s footsteps by stepping up the challenge.
Earlier this month, members of An Garda Síochána responded to the challenge laid down by Swiss police to “give the public we serve a lift in these challenging times”.
Swiss police claimed that their Irish counterparts would never be able to top the “precision, discipline and perfectionism” on show.
In a tweet, a Garda spokesperson said: “We have stepped up to the Swiss police @fedpolCH #JerusalemaChallenge. Gardaí across Ireland answered the call to give the public we serve a lift in these challenging times. #StayTogether #homeStaySafe.”
The global challenge began in February 2020 after a group of friends, Fenómenos do Semba, in Angola shot a video of themselves dancing to the track. The gospel-influenced house song is by South African producer, Master KG, and performed by singer-songwriter Nomcebo.
