As the world is slowly inching back towards normalcy post the coronavirus lockdown, a video of a gambler wearing a mask while smoking in Las Vegas in the United States is cheering social media up.

As states and countries eased lockdown regulations, many such as the state of Nevada opened up to tourists. However, a video of a man who had braved COVID-19 to sit at a Vegas casino and smoke even as he wore a mask is bringing cheer to netizens. The man can be seen sticking a cigarette to the side of his mask and lighting it before inhaling a puff. He goes on to temporarily move the mask off his face without entirely taking it off in order to let out the smoke.

While some tagged the man as a stupid "covidiot", others found the video hilarious.

The last person to go viral for smoking while wearing a mask since the start of the coronavirus pandemic was Hollywood actor Ben Affleck. The 'Bat Man' actor was roundly trolled after images of him smoking through a face mask went viral in April.

Meanwhile, the tally of total cases of coronavirus has crossed 2.4 million in the United States with over 1.5 lakh deaths.
