Thanks to some pretty popular websites, this video of an insane brawl at the Greek restaurant Stalactites in Melbourne, Australia is going viral, with people sharing it on Facebook and Twitter as fast as they can watch it. While that’s always a good time for everyone, it’s not really that much fun for the restaurant right now, as the owners posted a message on their website about all of the phone calls they’ve been receiving. Normally, a brawl like this, featuring pissed off dudes smashing chairs over each other’s heads, while women scream and idiots point cell phone cameras at them, would indicate that maybe people should steer clear of that restaurant. Fortunately, that’s not the case for Stalactites.

After all, this video was actually recorded five years ago, according to management, so the fact that the restaurant still has a website to update means that it’s doing pretty well. Despite the fact that people have been recycling this video on YouTube today, the owners assured everyone that “all the people involved were dealt with by the police and it was in the media at the time.” But as with any good viral video, no matter how old it may be, they also appreciate the free publicity. So if you’re in the area, make sure to stop in for some melitzanosalata or mixed souvlaki. Or maybe get the vegetarian platter. Haha, I don’t even know what those words mean!
