WATCH: T-rex, pink lycra and one epic sunrise party on Lion's Head

Cape Town - While some of us roll over for a few more minutes of sleep, things like this happen on the slopes near Table Mountain.

Well Cape Town's famous Lion's Head to be exact, a popular sunrise hiking spot. 

In this video shared to YouTube by Max Rantz-McDonald, he calls it The Early Morning Sunrise Uber Disco Dance...Dance or EMUDDD.

"The best way to start the day to celebrate Africa Day is to hike up Lions Head mountain above Cape Town and throw down a one song, one song only dance party.

Rantz-McDonald says, "I reached out to friends and friends of friends, local Capetonian's and international traveller's I had met on my Africa trip to join for a legendary Early Morning Sunrise Uber Disco Dance... Dance.

"We hiked up before first light and threw down an awesome, energy filled dance party as the sunrise came up and the clouds engulfed Cape Town.

He says he has been doing EMUDDD's all over the world for fun over the last few years and simply loves seeing how much people "enjoy the sudden burst of sober energy you feel when caught in the middle of an EMUDDD".

"Always the best way to smile ear to ear and start your day," T-rex and all.
