Right in the Kisser!
Have you ever heard of getting slapped so hard that you see stars?
Well, what about getting slapped so hard that you legitimately forget where you are?
If we could see inside the head of this guy who got caught in a barbershop brawl, that’s probably what we’d see.
When he got slapped across the face, for the first few moments it looked like he got knocked out cold entirely. One could only wish to know what he did to deserve it, but when you watch the video, you can almost FEEL the slap — that’s how hard it was. I can’t stop watching this.
These videos never seem to start early enough to show the whole lead-up, and this clip is no different. But if you’re ever in this situation and something is about to go down, you know you have to pull out your phone and get it on camera.
It’s impossible to know exactly what it was that set these guys off, but it becomes clear pretty immediately that they’re going to go at it.
They start moving toward each other like two chickens about to peck each other to death. The tension rises and gets so thick that you can tell that SOMETHING’s about to happen. And by the way that everyone around them is starting to huddle, it’s clear to everyone in the room, too.
It seems like the last thing that this barbershop wants is for a fight to play out… And yet everyone seems really interested in whether or not it will.
One of the men involved stands up and tries to get in between them, acting as if he might push them apart if things get too bad. Guess his timing wasn’t good enough.
There’s always the one thing that sets off violence at the beginning of the fight. In this case, this guy’s future victim sets him off with a taunt.
He’s practically asking to get hit when he says, “Don’t play!’
And that’s when the slap comes.
The Crazy Video
They’ve done all the right steps leading up to it: asserting strength, teasing, drawing a crowd.
But this guy was NOT prepared to get slapped the way he did.
The sound of it is so loud that you almost feel like you’re getting slapped across the face just by watching it. It almost doesn’t sound like skin, but more like something is getting hit with a ton of bricks.
Some guys punch, and some guys slap… But there’s so much anger in this slap that you can tell he has a reason to be furious. And it puts his victim immediately to the ground.
