The coronavirus pandemic made a huge impact in the whole world and as a result of its spread many governments issued lockdowns. People had to stay in quarantine so that they are being protected from the virus and as well as prevent its spreading.
We are living in difficult times and these quarantine periods are not so easy for many people. However, we need to find the strength to make through this period as our health is the most important thing that we have. Although this is a challenging time some people have become so creative during the lockdowns, especially when the curfew hours occurred. There have been many hilarious stories among which this video that was shared by a couple from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom., Nicholas Murray, and Madeline Mai-Davies.
They have made a video of their neighbor during quarantine hours that caught the attention of so many people all over the world. In order to avoid the quarantine hours their neighbour got disguised in a bush. In the video, Madeline is heard saying that her neighbour “reached new extremes of how to sneak out”.
This couple posted the video on TikTok, and once it was released millions of people have seen it. The image was one of a kind, a man covered in fake leaves from head to toes, carefully moving down the street.
The real truth behind this video is that this citizen was not trying to avoid the lockdown, but simply wanted to make a prank. So he camouflaged himself in a bush and like that went to do his grocery shopping which was allowed under curfew.
Nonetheless, that did not stop him to make a show, he rolls and somersaults across the road, and even freezes when a postman drives by in the quiet street. Afterwards, one can see him with a grocery bag.
“Looking back, I didn’t expect the video to go that viral and get 16.5 million views. Whilst in this difficult time we want to bring smiles, laughs, and hope.”
“I was overwhelmed with the support and following that came from it.”
We all need to laugh from time to time, especially now in these challenging times.
