Listening to this Bonteheuwel ou reacting to random videos and stories on social media is like having a conversation with your funniest friend.
Sergio Dylan Kannemeyer, 24, is the face behind a new blog spot called Reactions With Serg on Facebook.
You may recognise him as the guy who comments on a video about two Asian women preparing and cooking fried rats.
In the video he can be seen pulling his face and commenting: “Pap gekoek is die arme rot, jinne shaaaame”.
Reaction Time: So all I want to know is, is daar nie normal kos waar die mense bly nie🙄Posted by Reactions With Serg on Tuesday, August 25, 2020
His first post was only shared in August and already the young man is making waves and giving his 3000 followers belly aches from laughing too hard.
Sergio, who is a qualified journalist currently working as an intern in eTV’s media library, tells the Daily Voice that initially his videos were simply his way of expressing his opinions on stories or videos he finds on social media.
But after mense started complimenting him, he started making them more public, so that they can be seen he says:
“I’m known as the loud, energetic friend who’s blatantly honest. But there are times where I can be shy and I’m a bit introverted.
“I think it’s a case of knowing how and when to act a certain way,” he says.
Sergio says he always wanted to do these kinds of videos and lockdown was his chance.
“In 2018, I was going to do it with a friend, but then we never got to it, en toe is dit mos nou lockdown, and I didn’t know what to do with myself, and that’s when I decided to make my first video.
“To be honest, I didn’t expect anything to come from it. I then decided to upload a few more videos and people actually enjoyed it.”
Sergio’s first official reaction video was about new singing sensation, former car guard and drug addict Shihaam “Yummy” Fisher.
“I reacted to Yummy’s Stranger in My House/Careless Whisper mash-up and sent it to Yummy and Jamie Barthus because he helped her with it,” explains Sergio.
“He then decided to upload the video on Facebook and the next thing I knew, my notifications bombed.

“I was told to start a page and at first I was very hesitant, but then I thought, what do you have to lose?
“I basically react to anything, from people singing, to people deep frying rats.”
Sergio’s deep-fried rat video gained the most views since he posted it on 25 August and now stands at nearly 160 000 views.https://rumble.com/vaerg1-stand-up-commentary.html?mref=qnnu&mc=mbuvt
He says someone sent him the rat video on WhatsApp and when he saw the rotte being boiled, skinned and fried he was “shook to the core.”
“I literally drooled from naargeit and I wanted others to feel my pain.”
