Bus Uncle

video: YouTube

In late April of this year, a young man was riding a Hong Kong bus tapped a fellow passenger on the shoulder to inform him that he was talking loudly on his mobile phone.

The young man’s action was countered with a string of verbal insult from the loud talker, now dubbed as “Bus Uncle”. The entire event was captured by another passenger named “John” on his mobile phone and uploaded to YouTube.

EastSouthWestNorth has more details about this incident.

Personally, I am very impressed with Hong Kong newspapers' investigative reporting ability. Not only they have tracked Bus Uncle down, they have published his personal information (including height and weight), and profiled his wardrobe.


  1. yeah, I've seen that... it's a little funny, but nothing outrageous.

    What's even better are the terrible remixes and the puppet version!

  2. Some of those remixes are just damn great.
