Marindich who works as a driver at Rongai Police Post also told how they ended up recording the video.
He stated that during the World Rally Championships (WRC) rally in Naivasha, he met with Tula who doubles up as his manager and came up with the idea of shooting the skit.
While at the event, Marindich said they happened to come across a car that had broken down and asked the owner if they could use it to do the skit.
“The driver allowed us to shoot inside his car and we drove for a few minutes but could not go far. Cars kept on passing by our car leaving behind clouds of dust and that is why I had the dust all over my face,” he explained.
He also hopes to advance in his career after the video went viral across social media platforms.
“It will now open more doors to expand my comedy career. I want to tell my fans that they should expect more jokes and more projects,” Marindich said.
