A South African choreographer created a video hoping Meghan Trainor would see it… and it’s going viral for all the right reasons.


Cape Town, South Africa (05 September 2016) – Rudi Smit, an incredible dancer and choreographer from Cape Town uploaded the video less than 4 hours ago which has seen it being shared across social media thousands of times.

The routine was crafted to Megan Trainor’s new song “Me Too” & features over 27 of South Africa’s most talented dancers that you might have not heard of before, but have to see!

Smit was surprised that in less than 4 hours, the video had been viewed over 13, 000 times, that number has nearly tripled in the last hour!

“This is absolutely crazy!! In less than 3 and a half hours this video has been viewed more than 13,000 times!”

He created the video hoping that Meghan Trainor would see the unbelievable talent we have in South Africa… we’re not sure if she’s going to see it but we could put money on the fact that millions of others people definitely will.

“Thank you so much for the support and love!! Please help us get this concept & idea to Meghan Trainor so that she can see what talent we have here in SA.”

But he didn’t do it alone & thanked his incredible team for all the hard work!

“It was great to finally put together a video with my family, Untimitive. Thank you all for working hard and bringing this vision to life! I couldn’t have done it with any other team.”

The reception on social media has been epic, with thousands of views, shares & comments!
