The footage shows the man screaming in pain as his genitals are stuck in the turnstile at Covent Garden tube station. While witnesses gather around him, making attempts to set his manhood free, his screams get louder and louder as the pain presumably becomes unbearable.
Some of those who tried to help the would-be fare-dodger even suggested that they should “butter him up,” and another male voice calls for an alternative, shouting “oil” instead of butter.
The incident has set Twitter alight, as social media users kept poking fun of the situation:
