Human statue punches heckler in face
A video of a prankster getting punched in the mouth after winding up a 'human statue' street entertainer has gone viral online.
The clip of the unfortunate joker getting more than he bargained for from a silver-painted cowboy has notched up more than 4.3 million hits on YouTube.
The man started by playing with the street performer's hat and poking him in the face, as he entertained passers-by in Surfer's Paradise on Australia's Gold Coast.
At one point an onlooker can be heard shouting: "Hey, leave him alone!", but the prankster takes no notice.
Taking his routine to another level, he licks his finger and puts it in the artist's ear before wiping his hand on the man's face.
That was the final straw for the 'statue' who fires off a fast right hook, catching the man full in the face and almost knocking him to the ground.

Good on you mate.
What a plonker,got what he deserved.
you...you read the headline then clicked on it .
You cant really say he didnt deserve it .
Nice right hook! The idiot got what he deserved.
I remember a case where an idiot bully was harassing a mounted guardsman on parade. The guardsman seemed not to move a muscle but at an opportune moment the horse delivered the taunter a good kick where it would have done most good. The crowd cheered.
Yay! I love a happy ending!
Yeah, too right No-one needs to be spat on.
hahah good! you could imagine him boiling up inside there tolerating it for as long as possible!
In this country the 'statue' would probably have been charged with assault or something instead of being told 'well done mate'!

way to go mr statue
Excellent, no more than the idiot deserved................
What - no one coming on saying it was an 'over the top unnecessary assault' ? The do-gooders disappoint me !! Personally I think he got what he deserved .
good on him, guess the tattooed idiot may try to engage his brain before he does something like that again. in this country you'd only get away with it if you were a "working class hero" deputy prime minister.
