She did not anticipate that a simple aerobics video would bring instant and widespread internet fame

Update : 02 Feb 2021, 03:00 PM

In Myanmar, when a convoy of military vehicles arrived at parliament to depose the government in a coup, Khing Hnin Wai was recording her aerobics video in the vicinity. 

On Monday, the arrival of the army vehicles was filmed in the background of the video. Khing, however, continued to dance without missing a step, reports Scroll.in.

Khing, a physical education teacher in Myanmar, did not anticipate that a simple aerobics video would bring instant and widespread internet fame.

Khing  was recording the video for a fitness dance competition and she wanted to win it, and hence continued her aerobics unfazed while the military arrived at the Myanmar parliament in the background of her video.

She eventually noticed helicopters and vehicles with heavy weapons moving towards the parliament, and some officers even gave her a smile as they passed.

Some social media users raised concerns that the video might have been fake, but according to research quoted by BuzzFeed News, the allegation is unlikely to be true. 

The physical education teacher, who is an employee of Myanmar’s ministry of education, has also posted other videos in the past recorded at the same location.
