JAKARTA (THE JAKARTA POST/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Footage of Vice-President Jusuf Kalla dancing with his granddaughter Jamila on video-sharing application Tik Tok went viral on Wednesday (Sept 26).
In the 20-second clip, Jamila is seen filming herself dancing to Dutch rapper Dopebwoy's song Cartier, when the Vice-President entered the room and joined her.
Dressed in pyjamas, Mr Kalla follows Jamila's moves, waving his hands in the air.
The Vice-President's spokesman, Mr Husain Abdullah, told kompas.com that the video had actually been recorded in August, adding that it was initially meant for Jamila's friends.
He confirmed that the spontaneous dance-off took place in the Vice-President's official residence on Jl. Diponegoro in Menteng, Central Jakarta.

Mr Kalla reportedly had no qualms with the footage going viral.
It is currently available on Mr Husain's Instagram account @husainabdullah1, in which the spokesman referred to the dance moves as Joget JK (the JK Dance).
