Apparently the newest sensation on the internet is the Epic Beard Man, a video showing a black man (spurred on by a black girl yelling “say it again, pinky” and “beat his white ass”) assaulting an elderly white guy on a bus, but with a surprise ending.
Huffington Post reports:
But in three days, the Oakland bus fight has logged over two million views, again not counting hundreds of thousands of views for the multiple exact copies on other accounts (a stupefying if sometimes useful YouTube phenomenon) and followups. It also inspired video remixes, mashups, YouTube replies, spinoffs (there’s a cult around a hipster girl silently watching the fight), and surprisingly talented drawings like the one above. Why all the attention over just another public fight?
Here’s the video. Warning: It’s quite graphic.
N.B. At the end of the video the black girl with the camera steals the Beard Man’s bag.
Various remixes of the fight:
- Mortal Kombat
- Dance Music Remix
- Rocky Balboa Remix
- Bring Black Betty Music Video
- Brang da Amber Lamps / Amber Lamps Remix / Call da Ambalamps / Amber Lamps Club Remix
- Tribute to girl with purple leotard
