Although the clip has earned millions of views since it was uploaded, netizens reacted differently to the prank.

One netizen wrote:

“Well done for sharing this. Now a whole load of idiots (including me) will be doing this everywhere.”

Another commented:

“Not too smart. Could be an elderly or a woman holding a baby… Could get someone hurt very badly.”

Meanwhile, someone added:

“Definitely check who’s on the escalator. If there’s a baby, old man, kids, disabled people, blind people etc. don’t do it.”
