If your feet don't move while hearing this, they're stuck in ice.

This song was a "call and response" work song in the Johannesburg gold mines and it came to national prominence during the 1995 Rugby World Cup tournament here.

The song gives me chills, thrills and a few tears as well as does the memorable fly past Ellis Park by the great Captain Laurie Kay and his team: he threw that Boeing around in the air over Johannesburg so seemingly effortlessly, like it was a model aircraft. People who were present said that with the flyover and the downdraft, the entire Ellis Park stadium shuddered.

It may be a fire, tomorrow it could be nothing. It may reach out to the sky, light up everything that you know.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
