An Olympic cameraman ignited a swarm of social media reaction this week when he panned away from a women’s hockey activity to follow the path of a cockroach upcoming to the area.
The video has produced much more than 8.4 million views as of Saturday afternoon.
“La Cucaracha” a Spanish-language announcer deadpans as the gruesome insect casually propelled alone together what seems to be a beam next to the artificial actively playing floor in Tokyo.
Argentina led Spain 1- at the time, and went on to get 3-.
The unknown cameraman has been addressed like a parasite by some viewers, but most social media commentators appear to have found the humor in it.
“Guy desired to be a nationwide geographic cameraman but got the Olympics occupation instead,” quipped @athenajxnee.
“Why is this generating me snicker so much” mused @alexthezebra_
“Other roaches: YOOOOOOOOOOOO” said @jesussancen
And, ultimately, at minimum just one English-speaking viewer found the video a learning experience.
“I am these days decades old when I realised the music fast gonzeles sang is about the cockroach (la cucaracha),” opined @untestsubject.
