[WATCH] CastleLite SA in search of guy behind this hilarious load shedding skit

Wondering what's been trending on the internet? Here's a look at some of the top stories on What's Gone Viral with Khabazela.

Where's "load shedding guy"? - CastleLite SA wants to toast to this cool skit

South African beer brand CastleLite is on the hunt for the young man who posted a hilarious sketch online about how load shedding has impacted lovers of the brand.

The funny scene goes as follows.

A man walks into a bar and asks for CastleLite...

Patron: Hi, can I have a CasteLite?
Bartender: Sorry sir, we only have Castle.
Patron: Why?
Bartender: Loadshedding. No lite (light).

So far, a Twitter user has confirmed that the man is a bartender at Kelderhof Estate outside Somerset West.

Perhaps there's a collaboration on the cards, like the skit-makers of the viral #WooliesWaterChallenge?

Awareness campaign has the internet choked up

Elsewhere on the internet, a hard-hitting campaign by marine conservation group Sea Shepherd has divided people on social media.

The online campaign uses what some have described as disturbing images of marine life suffocated by or entangled in plastic waste.

They've computer generated these pictures with plastics over their faces. The animals are battling to breathe.

This comes days after it was reported that a dead whale in the Philipines was discovered to have more than 40kg of plastic in its stomach.

Pastor's dove message falls flat

And finally, a charismatic pastor had his wings clipped after a white dove that he released failed to take flight.

A video shows the pastor, who appears to be at a burial site, setting the bird free while sharing a word with the congregation. Except, instead of "flying free", the bird quickly descends and falls to the ground.
