A live broadcast featuring an online vendor’s hysterical reaction and screams at a huge sea eel jumping out of a container went viral in Taiwan on Monday.
Lee mei-mei (莉妹妹) was selling a huge sea eel live on Facebook when the sea creature, which was placed in a plastic container so she could weight it in front of the camera, suddenly escaped.
這個短短 30 秒的影片也被 19 萬人觀看，影片一開始「海鰻魚」在量重量時，便不斷扭曲身體想掙脫。最後直接把女直播主用手壓著蓋子擠開，直接掙脫。眼見狀況不對，老闆也立刻來幫忙但仍無法成功馴服這條鰻魚，讓原本要走回鏡頭前的正妹又尖叫落跑，場面相當逗趣。
The eel wiggled fiercely as it tried to sneak out of the plastic container so Lee first tried to cover it with a lid but to no avail. The camera caught her hilarious reaction and screams. The shop owner eventually came to her rescue but also struggled to tame the aggressive animal. As of this morning, the 30-second clip had been seen more than 190,000 times.
The clip also received a lot of attention on Facebook after it was reposted to a group with more than 69,000 members (台南爆料公社). Many netizens left comments such as “this sea eel must have been really fresh,” “I’ve rewatched this so many times already,” “I laugh so hard,” and “her scary screams were so hilarious.”
