About half a dozen supermarket workers sang and danced in the middle of a Madrid street along to the tune of “La Bomba” by Argentine dance music group King Africa to cheer up their neighbours who are confined to their homes.
The group — which remained a safe distance from each other as is recommended to prevent the spread of the coronavirus — clapped and raised their hands in the air as people looked on from their verandas, according to a video posted on social media on Wednesday which has since gone viral.
At one point a police car drove by along the otherwise deserted street and briefly played its siren in an apparent sign of approval.
