@Rob_Gray20 added: ‘It’s like air fencing with their fingers’ while @JaredBingham42 compared it to J K Rowling’s battle scenes: ‘This is essentially the same as the battle at Hogwarts scene in Harry Potter, just without the magic blue fireballs.’
Many suggested that this was simply how millennials go to battle in the 21st century.

@kimlockhartga quipped ‘It’s like bird ballet’ and @MordantTwit wrote: ‘My husband and I shall adopt this technique. The most peaceful yet meaningful fighting style I’ve ever seen.’
Quickly though, people began to smell a rat, suggesting that the men in the video knew each other and the clip was staged.
@Dre_Kriggs quizzed: ‘They have to know each other, lol. This can’t be serious.’
@spurzo added: ‘They don’t even swear or say anything to each other. Seems staged.’
