A physical education instructor from Naypyidaw, accidentally caught a convoy of military vehicles while recording her aerobic dance routine. The woman dressed in a black and green outfit kept on dancing on the song and black SUVs can be seen driving up to a security checkpoint on the road leading to the Assembly of the Union complex behind her.
The video clip has gone massively viral and has already been viewed million times. Although there were suggestions that the video had somehow been doctored and the woman was dancing in front of a green screen.
However, all the prejudgments soon seemed to debunk by finding the exact location in the capital city of Naypyitaw, where she was doing the aerobics.
The military arrested the National Leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other top government officials alleging them for voter fraud following November’s election.

World leaders such as Joe Biden and Boris Johnson have condemned the imprisonment of Ms Suu Kyi.
US President Joe Biden warned to put back sanctions on Myanmar after the country’s military detained leader Aung San Suu Ki. Sanctions were recently eased as the country got rid of prolong dictatorship.
However, the military had refused to accept November’s election results. It has announced a long-term state of emergency.
US President Joe Biden said in a statement, “force should never seek to overrule the will of the people or attempt to erase the outcome of a credible election”.
The US had removed sanctions as Myanmar implemented democracy. Mr. Biden said this would be urgently reviewed, adding, “The United States will stand up for democracy wherever it is under attack.”
The UN, the UK, and the EU have also condemned the detention. The UN Secretary-General António Guterres called the military’s move a “serious blow to democratic reforms”, as the Security Council prepared for an emergency meeting. The UN has demanded the release of at least 45 detained people.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Union leaders condemned the detention.
