Open up South Africa’s biggest news sites, and much of what greets you is bad news.
It’s not exactly their fault, because they’re just reporting on what’s happening around the world.
With Christmas around the corner, South Africa’s most visited news site, News24, decided to put together a little festive season special, in the hopes of bringing a few smiles to those who are just trying to make it through the rest of this year in one piece.
I will withhold making any comments and let them tee it up for you:
It’s been a busy year and, as usual, politics has taken centre stage ahead of the 2019 elections – and many changes in the political landscape.
That’s why we thought it would be apt if some of South Africa’s politicians brought a little festive cheer.
Sit back and watch as they attempt to ‘sing’ songbird supreme Mariah Carey’s 1994 hit All I Want For Christmas Is You.
You know, the one from Love Actually.

That took plenty of crafty editing, so please try and be kind.
As it stands, the upvote / downvote on YouTube is still favourable, which is something the YouTube Rewind 2018 video can’t claim. That one is currently nearing the 10 million downvotes mark, and should soon replace Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ as the most disliked video of all time (if it hasn’t already).
By the way, if you want a real Christmas chuckle, we recommend that video of Santa bailing out of the NSRI boat in Bakoven.
