Hilarious Spoof Attracts 17,000 Visits

A comical video, which shows a spoof of tsunami evacuations, had 17,000 views in the past 24 hours on a local Facebook page.

The seven second clip shows a group of boys role playing a scene of their reaction when a tsunami warning was issued.

Instead of moving to higher ground, the video shows the boys, all running to the seawall in extreme excitement.

It then shows them taking pictures on their phone as they pointed towards the water.

The video was posted on the popular Facebook page called, I’m proud to be a Fijian-Community. The page has 71,000 followers.

The page normally posts humorous videos that people normally send in.

According to the administrator of the page, the video was made in 2014 by popular dance group VOU Company.

Director of VOU, Sachiko Soro said back in 2014, there was a tsunami warning and they noticed that most people were really panicking and running up the hills.

Mrs Soro said at the same time people were actually going down to the water front to curiously look around. She called that situation crazy, saying if there was a real tsunami, the people at the waterfront would all be endangered.

“So the video is just a friendly poking fun at this curiosity that we Fijians have to go and see things even if it can be dangerously (fatal),” she said.

She said despite its silliness, the video warns not to do this. In the caption in the VOU Facebook page if there was a warning – ‘head to higher ground.’

“We never expected it to go viral so long after we made it, but we love to make entertaining clips that observe quirky things in modern Fiji culture.
