The Da Vinci Code may be dominating the box office
but one of the most popular movies online is a
six-minute film showing a grumpy man scolding a
fellow bus passenger in Hong Kong for interrupting
his phone call.
Look back in anger... Bus Uncle
Bus Uncle, as the film is known, has been viewed
nearly 1.7m times on the video website Youtube.com
- the second most-viewed video on the site in May -
spawning spoofs and new slang drawn from the
ranting subject's emotional soliloquy. The grainy film, which is
apparently shot with a mobile phone on the top of a double-decker
bus, is hilarious for its sheer absurdity and dramatic twists.
The film starts with the middle-aged protagonist reacting strongly
when a young man sitting behind him taps his shoulder to ask him to
keep his voice down while talking on the phone.
"I don't know you. You don't know me. Why do you do this?" the
infuriated man says, punctuating the sentence by jabbing his right
hand downward in the air. When the young man, who rarely talks back
during the argument, expresses an unwillingness to continue the
conversation, the middle-aged man explodes, "This is not resolved!
This is not resolved!" - now a catchphrase in Hong Kong. He goes on
to say: "I face pressure. You face pressure. Why did you provoke
Just when the dispute seems to have ended after the young man
apologises and the two shake hands, the young man takes issue with
profanity used by the middle-aged man, who then launches into
another round of swearwords.
Internet users have also added Chinese and English subtitles. The
video has inspired numerous spoofs, including a karaoke version and
a rap song using the middle-aged man's refrain: "I face pressure.
You face pressure."
