THIS is the slapstick moment a “complete moron” floored himself while trying to sucker punch another drinker during a street brawl.
Video showing the late night fight, which included several people, has been circulating on social media.
The clip shows a man in a yellow hoodie creeping up behind another lad – but just at the moment he swings for a punch, the lad bends over to pick something up off the ground.
As a result he hits nothing but air and he is sent flying to the ground, landing on his back.
In a bid to play it cool he is then seen immediately getting up and walking away.
该视频, originally posted to Snapchat, has now been seen more than 10 million times after it was posted to Twitter.
But despite the comedic nature of the clip, many rushed to comment on the seriousness of the matter.
一个人写道: “These people need to learn why punches to the back of the head (rabbit punches) are illegal in boxing.
“Easily end up on a manslaughter charge behaving like that.”
另一个说: “Made me REALLY angry seeing this, he could have killed him quite easily if connected. These drunken morons don’t think. Life is fragile.”
And a third added: “Nothing at all funny about this. It’s frightening to think what could have happened if he had if connected.
“Could have easily led to a death as it was a sucker punch and two sets of families lives could have been ruined that night. Complete moron.”
