WATCH The Resurrection Challenge Video that Finally Lays Viral Post to Rest

South Africa has had a field day with weird and wacky viral posts in the past week – namely My F*k Marelize (where a 19-year-old learner cyclist rode straight into a rugby pole!) and ‘The Resurrection’, the latter even making news around the world.

The Guardian newspaper in the UK posted a collection of some of the best tweets, after the hashtag ResurrectionChallenge went viral within hours of Pastor Alph Lukau’s kind of ridiculous video of him ‘reviving’ a man who was supposedly dead.

The Alleluia Ministries International pastor claimed to have performed a miracle… but instead set off a social media craze with people mimicking his so-called powers. Watch here:

And now Richard Henry Productions in South Africa have created the ultimate Resurrection Challenge video… that finally puts the viral post to rest.

Director Richard van Schalkwyk told SAPeople: “This one is not quite out of the news yet. I was going to say not dead yet but…”

He added: “We had fun making it!”
