Vinny decided to take a shot at the challenge that’s been taking over social media and showed off his tiny waist while attempting to capture the same jutting hip moves that have taken over the nation.

However, Vinny’s impromptu submission to the “Umlando Challenge” doesn’t seem to have impressed Mzansi.

The challenge first began on TikTok, which has become a popular place for viral videos and new music.

Videos of social media users participating in the “Umlando Challenge” have trended on Twitter.

The video that sparked the challenge sees a man dressed in black jeans, topless and wearing a bucket hat, move his hips sideways as he dances to the song in various locations.
