March 16, 2021 | 12:51 pm CDT
Irish forklift giant Combilift has added a St. Patrick's Day twist to the Jerusalema Dance Challenge, a dance craze going viral around the world. Check it out above.
The Ireland-based manufacturer went all out, adding Irish step dancers, intricately-choreographed forklift dance sequences, and utilizing what appears to be all of its 550-employee local workforce. The video looks like it has picked up nearly a 100,000 views in less than a day.
The Jerusalema Dance Challenge appears to have began in early 2020 when South African group Fenómenos do Semba filmed themselves dancing to the song Jerusalema. It soon went viral, with subsequent videos amassing tens of millions of views across social media. Other renditions include those from Austrian Airlines, the Swiss and Irish police, and a group of Irish nuns.
