This Viral Video Of A Man Giving His Girlfriend Just The Hood Of His Coat Has Got The Internet Torn
According to Kennedy News Media, Jake Shannon, 26, spotted a couple holding hands during a rainy day in Northwich, Cheshire. Not much was out of the ordinary, except for the sight of the man's hood atop his girlfriend's head, while the rest of the coat was on him. Shannon thought the sight was so bizarre that he actually drove back to film them.
"I couldn’t stop laughing. It was hammering it down. I reckon he has paid for her haircut and didn’t want it ruined. It’s more than likely – I would do the same if I’d paid for my missus’ hair.
"I have no idea why he chose to just give her the hood and not the whole coat. He probably didn’t want to get wet himself but thought he better protect her hair. I think it’s very unusual, it’s quite inventive. If I was out when it was raining I would just give my missus my coat, I would never think to unbutton the hood and just give her that. I think my missus would just take my coat off me."
The video, which has gone viral on Facebook, has now been viewed nearly 2 million times.
"I’ve had thousands of comments from people – lots of people tagging their partners saying they wouldn’t give them their hood. I think it’s captured people’s imagination because it’s just so unusual. It’s really out of the ordinary – it’s not something you expect to see walking down the street."
Though many people think the boyfriend's actions were nice, many others feel differently, pointing out that he could have just given his girlfriend the whole coat.
So, what do you think? Chivalrous, or selfish?
