In the video posted by the user on June 4, a UK-based resident can be seen working on a supermarket counter before feigning to lose consciousness and falling down.

People pretending to be unwell to get rid of work is not so unusual. A Twitter user, however, recently pretended to faint to get off work and shared the video of the incident. The viral footage is breaking the internet. Sharing the video, the Twitter user ‘El Pedro’ asked the best ways in which others had blown off work. He said in the tweet that he was 18 and hungover and it was a “Boxing Day,” for which he wanted to go out. People on Twitter are finding the video hilarious and sharing their experiences as well.

In the video posted by the user on June 4, a UK-based resident can be seen working on a supermarket counter. He brings some stuff for a woman customer and starts tapping the computer screen, possibly to register the order. When the woman picks up the item and keeps it in her bag, the counter person is holding his forehand with his right hand. As the woman picks her card to make payment, the man holds the transparent divider on his right side. When the woman is not paying attention, he turns to his left where there is space and falls down on the floor. When the woman sees it, she is shocked.

The user wrote in the Tweet that he made sure that the manager was there.

In another reply, he disclosed that after half a year, he told the woman in the video that he had faked the fainting. To his relief, she took it well and he was not sacked from his job.
