This blog has reached post number 100! I am proud to celebrate number 100 by offering you another viral YouTube video straight out of Hong Kong.
Once again, it’s another video taken from a bus in Hong Kong. Nasty videos on public transport are not foreign to Hong Kongers. Remember Bus Uncle (巴士阿叔) and the wailing woman at the airport who missed her flight? Once again, this one embodies ignorance, embarrassment, lack of common courtesy and epitomises shame and indecency. Shame on you boy! This video is called「毒男~~~！（你老師點教你）」(Nerd~~~! How does your teacher teach you?). A warning: you will be disgusted.
This video is about a Form 5 (Year 11) student and his unwillingness to offer the vacant seat next to him to a man waiting beside him. He continuously denies the man the seat and claims that was no seat despite his bag on it. Reluctantly, he offers the seat after being given the stern reality that a seat in fact exists next to him and he can no longer hold out anymore. Afterwards it becomes a shoutfest with some mild coarse language.
The original video has reached nearly one million views. For your convenience, I have found a translated version.
I feel that I must do justice and restore your confidence in Hong Kong people’s attitudes. I cannot say that I know any Hong Konger that is as self-centred and arrogant as he. I am personally embarrassed at his attitude and it sickens me to see his level of selfishness. Now I would only hope he does not make it to Australia like he said. We definitely don’t want you here!
