Origin

Roger Chan, a 51-year old unemployed man, and Elvis Ho, a real estate agent 28 years Chan’s junior, were complete strangers before the… incident. On April 27, 2006, Ho tapped Chan’s shoulder on a Hong Kong bus and Chan flipped the hell out. And, of course, it was all captured on a cellphone camera:

Can’t speak Chinese? Enjoy these subtitles:
