Bumble bee gives man a high five on video

High five or a cranky bee?
High five or a cranky bee?

THE hot weather in Britain is making some people do odd things.

For instance, a video of a seemingly inebriated man getting a high-five from a Bumble Bee has gone viral on YouTube, racking up over seven million views.

The story surrounding the video is unclear but on the clip voices can be heard asking whether the insect is still alive.

After a couple of gentle prods the bee appears to high-five the man, delighting the watching audience.

The seemingly good nature of the bee high-five has been questioned by some less than charitable commenters with some suggesting the bee was adopting the raised-leg position because it was threatened.
