It’s important to stay positive and keep life light-hearted.

It’s always ideal to see the silver lining in not-so-great circumstances. Whether it’s work that has got you down or something else, it doesn’t hurt to try and make the best out of a situation.

Life is stressful enough as it is. So why make it harder on yourself?

Two young men in the military are sure to know a thing or two about being in dire situations and stress. Perhaps, a lot better than most.

But if these two can take one of the most crucial jobs and make it lighthearted and fun, then we have no excuses!

Two soldiers took a break from the seriousness of their job to perform a choreographed dance routine to Mr. Eazi’s, “Akwaaba.”

Mr. Eazi is a Nigerian singer and songwriter. He’s known as “the pioneer of Banku music” which is “a mixture of Ghanaian highlife and Nigerian chord progressions and patterns.” Essentially, it is a subgenre of Afrobeat mixed in with reggae, R&B, and hip-hop but can also be played mellow.

Since its release, the song has taken on a life of its own, birthing another internet dance challenge.

There are online tutorials where professional dancers teach the routine as well as amateur dancers doing their best to perform a version all their own.

These soldiers are definitely in the latter category.

Dressed in their green uniforms, the two men perform in an undisclosed location but it looks like a big garage. Their names are also unknown but based on the caption of the video, one of the men is named Adrien. However, links to their social media handles have since expired.

The two buddies march in rhythm to the beat. Similar to the “left, right, left” marching style. But of course, this routine calls for much more hand movement and less rigidness. They extend an arm into the air on every fourth downbeat.

As the camera moves with the duo, we can see one of their peers in the background. He’s working with on object, completely unphased at the dance recital happening before him. This just may not be the first time this duo has broken out in a dance routine.

After about thirty seconds of dancing alongside each other, the man on the left takes centerstage and busts out a solo dance performance. Interestingly, he looks a lot more comfortable and “loose” during this solo part than he did dancing with his partner.

When he (literally) bounces away, his friend (literally) bounces into frame, replacing him. It’s a cute and funny switch.

But the tables have turned as his friend who looked a lot more comfortable with dancing with his buddy looks a bit more shy dancing alone in front of the camera. His solo is much shorter than his partner’s.

This just might be how their friendship works so well, they balance each other out!

Those in the comments also enjoyed their routine. Who doesn’t enjoy watching men dance in uniform?

“I appreciate your service y’all. I’m glad to see you guys can still have a lil good time while away from home.”

“Ugh, there is a warm space in my heart for those who serve our country. Love seeing the soldiers having some fun time.”

“I love how they can relax whilst having the pressure of protecting their country.”

Watch these two soldiers make the most out of life in the video below.
