Most social media trends are bizarre, whether it be the Kiki Challenge or the recent rave - a viral video of two men fighting by showing the finger to each other. However, reports confirm everyone's greatest fear: the entire video was staged and the fight was completely fake.

The video was watched by viewers all over and presently has over 197,300 re-tweets and 557,900 likes. The video shows two men in an intense finger-showing brawl. While one of them stands his ground on the sidewalk, the other walks across, narrowly missing being hit by a van, all the while flashing the finger in passionately. Many twitter users put up memes, comparing the face-off to other funny ones.

The video was uploaded by producer Guy Blelloch, who confirmed that it was staged. “I made it with my friends,” Blelloch confessed.
His credentials on LinkedIn state that he is the creative director for Jerry Media, a creative agency that developed on their super popular Instagram meme account Fuck Jerry.
Blelloch, has in the past made similar staged videos which depict him apparently 'catching' someone who tries to put condoms on the handlebars of a Citbike; or doing hilariously bad pull-ups and the like.
