NYC subway TikTok goes viral

TikTok user persephoneofdaunderworld posted a video on April 8 that showed a fight brewing between two parties of men on the New York City subway.

As the two groups began to draw near each other, passengers fled quickly to escape the pending brawl.

However, as soon as they got in each others faces, music began playing and a dance battle ensued, as all of the men began busting it down.

The star of video TikTok is a shirtless man, who came out of nowhere and began dancing, even hanging from the top railing and pulling out the worm.

The unsung hero of the viral TikTok is the woman with AirPods in on the left side of the screen who, in the most New York City fashion possible, ignored both the original fight and the dancing that ensued.

The video instantly went viral and has over 700k views at the time of writing.
