A video from a hockey game at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 is becoming viral, but not for the reasons you would think. The film, which shows the cameraman covering a waddling cockroach during an active match, has already elicited laughs.
The event occurred during a women’s ice hockey game between Spain and Argentina. Many people are now sharing a video of a cockroach travelling through a field. It was shown as a shot was being replayed.
Many others, like this Twitter user, are now spreading the video footage online.

Since it was shared, the post has had over five million views, and the figure is still growing. It has also received a large number of comments.
“Is my sense of humour just very stupid, or is this truly the funniest?” a Twitter user said while re-sharing the post. Another said, “I’m fascinated with this.” “This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen,” a third said, laughing out loud.
“This video has raised the bar so high for me that I don’t think anything will ever make me as delighted as an Olympics cameraman concentrating on a roach simply vibing instead of focusing on absolutely anything else,” a fourth said.
After a few seconds of lingering above the insects, the camera returned to the action to display the Spain vs. Argentina match, according to LadBible.
