A Nice Little Beijing Subway Scuffle

There are a lot of things we like about this 35-second video. There’s the automated voice — which we’ve heard so many times that it now exists in the realm of our subconscious — telling us that the train is nearing Dongdan on Line 1. There’s the shouting: Waarrrrgh! Aaarrrrrgh! There are the passengers nearby, especially the man in the white shirt. There’s the voice of the woman off-camera who, as if beseeching children, says, “Stop fighting. Just stop.” And is that man on top trying to stuff the other guy into a box? Pure joy all around.
