The unspeakably bizarre Twitter account created in honour of Rassie Erasmus

Rassie Erasmus’ Twitter followers have gone deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole of the South Africa director of rugby’s life as he serves his ban recently, and it got a whole lot stranger last Friday.

Erasmus shared a video of himself dancing last Friday during what seems to be his never ending party since he was banned from all rugby activity for two months in November.

The video in itself is mightily peculiar, but it has now spawned a new tribute Twitter account, which is bigger, better and stranger. Here is the original clip:

The new account, called ‘Dancing Rassie’, takes this viral clip of the former Springbok cutting shapes with a host other songs dubbed over it. There have been 23 videos posted at the time of writing, and it is likely that that number will grow over the coming days.

Take a look at the account:

This was not the only instance of Erasmus gracing social media with his dance moves. Only days before he had shared another video of himself which looked to be from the same night as his viral video. The positive for him is that he knows he has a back up career as a dancer if his rugby career goes down hill or he cops another ban.

Erasmus and South Africa Rugby apologised last month for their conduct during the British & Irish Lions series earlier this year which led to his infamous 62 minute video and subsequent ban a few months later.

The statement said: “SA Rugby and Rassie Erasmus wish to apologise to the match officials appointed to the first Test of the Springboks’ Series against the British & Irish Lions.

“We also confirm that SA Rugby and Erasmus have advised World Rugby that they withdraw their Notice of Appeal and will not lodge an appeal against the sanctions imposed by the Judicial Committee.

“This has been a highly stressful and charged environment with unusual pressures placed on all concerned and we have no wish to prolong that experience for anyone.

“We have drawn a line under the incident and only wish to look forward. We will respect the outcomes of the hearing, allowing our national teams and rugby operations to plan with clarity for the coming months.”
