An aerobics instructor filming her exercise routine in front of Myanmar’s parliament has gone viral on social media after it unintentionally captured the first moments of a dramatic coup in the background.
The video recorded in capital Naypyidaw shows a woman, reportedly named Khing Hnin Wai, do her workout as black SUVs drive up to a security checkpoint on the road leading to the Assembly of the Union complex behind her.
As the upbeat song she is dancing to builds tempo, the convoy swells in sync with the music. As per details, the dancer is oblivious to what is happening behind her.
According to The Guardian, Wai on Tuesday early morning clarified that video was real and that she had filmed many videos in the location before.
She has been filming dance videos outside the assembly for 11 months, said Wai.
Meanwhile, social media cannot get enough of the video and has been cracking jokes on it ever since it surfaced. The original clip shared on Twitter has received more than 12 million views till the filing of this story.
People are also debating if the video is fake or real.
