A new video has emerged of a naked passenger in the Tel Aviv airport beating his chest and making music before throwing chairs at other passengers.
Another Passenger Loses It In An Airport
The latest installment has arrived in a new reality of seemingly unending examples of passengers completely losing it either in airports or on planes. In the video below, an apparently middle-aged man completely and utterly nude is recorded beating his chest and singing as he struts around an airport departure lounge.
As many of the other passengers move away from the disturbed individual, he continues to move throughout the room. At one point near the end, he approaches another passenger, dressed in a suit, and throws a chair at him.
Finally, It’s Not An American
When this video came to my attention, admittedly, I was pleased to see that it was not an American embarrassing himself in this way. After all, it was just Friday that Matthew shared a video of a woman half naked with “no drawers” patiently standing in line at what was reportedly at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.
It’s clear this incident took place in Tel Aviv, Israel. I can’t really explain why travelers are exhibiting such behavior and being generally weird in public, it does feel like this happens more in the United States than elsewhere. While the United States doesn’t hold a monopoly on passengers stripping nude, it does seem like there’s a higher percentage here, enough that some sites could be dedicated to people freaking out, melting down, and generally acting inappropriately solely when they travel. From seeing poltergeists to last Friday’s case of the woman casually waiting in line, naked from the waist down – it feels like it always happens here.
There’s a broader question to answer as to whether unhinged behavior, a) happens more often when traveling than not; and b) indeed happens more proportionately in one part of the world than another.
There’s little context to go on in the video shared on Reddit earlier this week. It’s hard to say what was going on before the video started, but it’s clear that the many is having a breakdown of some sort that included not only stripping nude in an airport but beating his chest, singing, and then lashing out violently. It’s not always an American involved but feels like it happens in the States more often. This case was in Tel Aviv, Israel according to the submitter of the video.
What do you think? Why does this behavior seem to happen in travel situations?
