Asda Omagh colleagues star in viral Jerusalema dance challenge video

April 21, 2021

Dance-loving duo Carol Sharkey and Clodagh Devlin from our Omagh store have been putting smiles on people's faces by choreographing and filming colleagues taking part in the Jerusalema viral dance challenge.

The feel-good dance is hugely popular on TikTok, and so Carol and Clodagh wanted to make their own version to spread a little cheer.

They were joined by eight other colleagues from the store for a show-stopping, socially distanced performance.

Their video has proved a big hit on Facebook and YouTube, and Carol said: "We are overwhelmed with the number of nice comments under the video. Customers at check-outs have mentioned what a great performance we put on and how it really brightened up their day, which is so lovely to hear."

Grocery colleague Carol says that everyone had a great time making the video.

"Although we organised training, we pretty much winged it on the day but that made it even more fun," she said. "We have challenged a few other Asda stores in Northern Ireland to take part in the dance as well – we can’t wait to see their dance moves.”

Admin colleague Clodagh, who's worked at the store for 25 years, says she wanted the dance to put smiles on people's faces in the wide community and as a way of creating some fun for colleagues who've been working throughout the pandemic.

She said: “We wanted to have a little light-hearted fun with our work colleagues while also building morale within the store. We have all worked consistently through-out the pandemic and creating this video has given all involved a huge boost to get through the remaining lockdown. Not to mention, it was great craic!"

General store manager Stephen Henry thanked Carol and Clodagh for their efforts.

He said: “It was amazing to see a total of 10 colleagues from different departments in the store get involved in such a great team bonding activity.

"I am so proud to have both Carol and Clodagh as part of the Omagh team – this was just one of the ways they positively contribute to the store."
