These are not undertakers, but simply black people carrying the coffin)
Dancing with the coffin is an ancient tradition common in Ghana. The people of this country hire special dancers for the funeral in order to cheerfully send the dead to the next world.
The earliest known appeared in Tiktok. The user took a video with a skier and inserted this video with a coffin at the end. As planned, the dancing blacks with coffins show that the failure in the first video ended in death for the hero
Blacks with coffins is a meme hinting at a lethal outcome.
From Africa. There is such a country of Ghana, and it has completely stubborn burial traditions - with fun, songs, dances, in some incredible coffins:

Just google" Ghana coffins "- this is really a work of art.
The video itself appeared in the BBC news back in 2017, but this year someone cut this plot, put the appropriate music on it, and, given the situation, this image fell directly on time and was able to turn into a successful meme.
In Ghana (a state in West Africa) there is a tradition according to which a deceased person is carried in a coffin to the accompaniment of national music. What for? Believe it or not, the undertakers would dance. Africans believe that this is how you need to see a person off to the next world. It should be noted separately that the coffin together with the deceased can reach a centner - the porters must be strong to perform all these shenanigans with dancing.
For the first time something like this was published on YouTube in 2015: reap the coffin and dance on the spot to the music. No, not the one you might have heard in memes. Two years later, a video with these guys was posted by the BBC channel - it was he who became the starting point for the meme, which, according to some sources, originated at the end of February 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic was raging around the world (hmm, are meme and pandemic is a good question).
And this is the first video meme posted on TikTok: it shows a skier doing somersault ... His trick is interrupted by a video of Africans dancing with a coffin to the same track (see below). On TikTok, the video received almost 500 thousand likes. Now the meme is used to refer to any ridiculous deaths or just unsuccessful tricks, actions, and so on.
The video features a track by the Russian musician Tony Igy - Astronomia, it was recorded and published 10 years ago, but during this time, they say, some managed to record it at their own expense. However, this is a completely different story!
