Singapore – On Saturday, December 15, 2018, Facebook user Eric Liow posted on his profile a video that went viral. Only 24 hours have passed and the video has more than 88 thousand views with 2,354 shares and 194 comments.
The trending video shows a couple of men engaged in a fight in a popular Chinese restaurant named “笑哈哈” or “Happy Restaurant” which is located at Geylang Lorong 21.
The main character in the brawl seems to be the intoxicated man in a gray shirt who is hellbent in doing some damage to the other man in a striped black and red shirt. They have a few teammates either backing them up or trying to break the fight. Restaurant personnel was also seen separating the group from each other while bystanders went for cover from the shattered glass shards.
Beer bottles went flying through the air while some were used as weapons and landed on each other’s heads.
The woman capturing the live event could be heard shouting in shock and confusion at what was happening in front of her eyes. When she mentions that the cops and the owner of the restaurant have arrived, the fighting ceases.
Facebook user Kennie Bee commented on the post while tagging the Singapore Police Force in hopes that the latter will be urged to implement laws that apprehend fights like the one that had just occurred.
While the safety and overall health of the affected parties were at stake, netizens found something that was more worthy of their time: the quality of the video. Many were inquiring on the model and brand of the device that could take a video with such high quality.
Others, such as Shahlan S Shahlan, commented that regardless of the day and age, one trusty weapon for impromptu fights like these remains a classic, that being beer bottles.
Lastly, netizens Muhd Amir Bin Tuah and Aravind Parthiban, engaged in a friendly discussion regarding the effects of drinking alcohol.
TISG has reached out to Mr. Eric Liow for more details on the said event.
