People have a tendency to make irrational decisions when under the influence of alcohol. Before the digital age, people were able to have embarrassing, drunken moments with no worries about footage of their episodes ever surfacing. Thanks to cell phones, no one is safe anymore. Now, a drunk guy is the subject of ridicule following a street brawl he started while under the influence.
On Sunday, April 26, footage of the drunk guy surfaced online via World Star Hip Hop. The one-minute clip begins with the shirtless drunk guy staggering in the middle of a street, attempting to start a fight with a guy who clearly does not want to be bothered. He can be seen following the other guy back and forth across the street. Although the other guy makes it clear he does not want to fight, the drunk guy refuses to take “no” for an answer.
As the video continues, the drunk guy refuses to stop provoking the other guy’s wrath. Others can be heard reiterating that the guy is drunk, but no one makes an effort to diffuse the brewing situation. By the 50-second mark, the other guy becomes impatient and decides to retaliate. He swings at the drunk guy, who actually never swings back due to his drunkenness. Then, the fight gets a bit more intense when the guy gets one solid punch on the drunk guy. The epic blow knocked the drunk guy out. At the end of the video, he can be seen lying in the street.
In less than 24 hours, the video has gone viral with more than 440,000 views. Although the drunk guy was knocked out, most viewers insist that he was wrong for provoking the other guy. However, others argue that he could have simply walked away without hitting the drunk guy at all.
