Video of MRT commuter’s live crayfishes escaping from plastic bag goes viral


A video of an MRT commuter’s live crayfishes trying to make an escape on the train has gone viral since it was posted online last week.

In the video, a well-dressed man in business attire can be seen holding a plastic bag containing the live crayfishes. The crayfishes hop out of the plastic bag and the man can be seen scrambling to recoup them as fellow commuters in the MRT compartment burst into laughter at the hilarious scene.

The man can be seen going back to his seat once all the crayfishes are accounted for, while other commuters continue giggling. One commuter can even be heard saying, “no worries, they are fresh” in reference to the live creatures:

  1. Hey you! no live creatures in the train allowed!

    For the first time, there was laughter in the train.

    Next time, I hope some one will play a ‘Prank’ in the train so there will be more laughter.
