WATCH: Ashwin, Nick & Naas dance in happier times on SuperSport set

    Cape Town - The on-air SuperSport studio walkoff by Ashwin Willemse has dominated sports news in recent days.

    EXCLUSIVE: Why SuperSport said the Willemse incident wasn't racist

    And when we say 'dominated', we mean it literally broke the internet here at Sport24 HQ, and stats show the incident is right up there with the biggest sports news - ever - in South African history!

    It's been well documented by now (check HERE for proof), but by way of a recap, Willemse, clearly angered by the actions of fellow analysts Nick Mallett and Naas Botha, accused his fellow former Springbok co-workers of patronising him, adding he could not "work with people that undermine other people".

    SuperSport subsequently held a clear-the-air meeting to discuss matters with the trio.

    However, that meeting failed to deliver any resolution, so SuperSport yanked them off air for last weekend's Super Rugby action, appointed an independent mediator to investigate ... and that's where we are at present in the saga.

    BUT ... life on the SuperSport set for the trio was not always serious - as the video below indicates!

    There were indeed happier times back in 2014 when Willemse, Mallett and Botha attempted (but failed?) to replicate the 'Trevor Nyakane/Raymond Rhule post-try celebration shuffle'.

    Go ahead and enjoy - and help break the internet once again.
