BIZARRE footage shows an altercation between a clown and an umbrella-wielding attacker outside a McDonald’s.
The duo were spotted fighting outside the restaurant in Wood Green Shopping Centre in Hornsey, London.
It’s believed the strange scene took place yesterday, though it is not known what caused the dispute.
As the video begins, a man dressed a clown in bright yellow trousers and a red jacket with a green collar is seen having an argument with a man in a blue coat.
The man in the blue top aggressively lashes out at the clown multiple times, while another member of the public records the fight.
The person recording can be heard saying: “Hey one on one with the clown.”
He then begins to laugh as the man in the blue jacket knocks the clown’s wig off with what appears to be an umbrella.
The man recording continues: “Why is he having a one on one with the clown, what’s going on?”
The aggressive male in blue proceeds to charge towards the clown and at one-point lashes out with a body kick while shouting: “Go and get a job.”
The incident begins to cool off when a McDonald’s manager emerges from inside the restaurant and tries to speak to the clown.
Members of the public watching the strange fight can be heard laughing in the background as the clown stands with his wig on the floor.
The fight has left many social media users on Twitter amused.
