Comedian Donovan Goliath and partner Davina Gordon have been delivering some of the best, and most creative, lockdown content on social media to help keep fans entertained.

And now their latest post has attracted the attention of an international star. 

The video, captioned 'How to make a Miss Elliot music video', sees the couple "hovering in the air" to the tune of Missy's Get Ur Freak On. The effect was done with the magic of video editing, of course, and referenced Missy Elliot's unique music video style. 

The Work It hitmaker happened to spot the clip, posting a screengrab of it on her Instagram stories, and commenting on Donovan's Instagram page with a number of laughing and fire emojis.  

According to the SA comedian, Missy Elliot even followed him on Twitter. 

"Be lying if I said I didn't freak out a little bit when I saw Missy post our video to her stories THEN follow me on Twitter. Yikes!" he wrote.
