Setlhabi Taunyane, the Bra Kop from the popular South African film series Rhythm City had many South Africans amused or curious after a clip of him getting a Thai massage surfaced online. It went viral in no time.
Many were amused to see that actor out of character, getting a massage. His looks in that image even had some South Africans worried whether he was okay. One Twitter user asked whether the massage was painful, as the actor looked like someone in agony. You can check out the image below.

One man who has not said anything about the picture is the actor himself, He is probably amused by the whole interest in the picture and how it had gone viral even without him making any effort to promote his massage session.
For South Africans, though, the meme-making with the picture continues. In a country where the spectre of load-shedding has refused to go away, surely they are entitled to amuse themselves with whatever pops into their orbit, even though in this case it might be at the expense of one of their own.
Surely, the Bra Kop himself wouldn’t mind a little ribbing. Or would he? Let the memes continue.
