A ‘self made’ video of a drunk man, wearing just his underwear and climbing along an overhead gantry at the A494 in Ewloe has had over a quarter of a million world wide views on You Tube since 30th December.

The video ended up on the front page of the social news website Reddit yesterday which in turn saw views on You Tube increase by nearly 100,000 from Sunday night to Monday morning.

It was posted on You Tube by a user called Ray Charles – its unclear who he is or where he is from, as he has a different name to the man in the video.

The video called Why I shouldnt drink has gained 140 comments so far from You Tube users, which range from fairly abusive to some describing the video as fake, while others obsess on where he put his phone to climb the gantry, on a whole they are fairly negative and probably reflect the foolish and dangerous antics of the man.

The Male shot the video of himself at 6am in the morning and claims to have been drinking all night at a friends house, and is not sure where he left his clothes.

At one point he claims to have been running round Ewloe Green primary school without clothes on, he also appears to nearly fall from the gantry, which is on the East bound carriageway of the A494 just before the Buckley turn off.

WARNING – THE VIDEO CONTAINS A LOT OF SWEARING!
