A couple was filmed simulating sordid sex in the middle of a street in West London. In the footage, an overenthusiastic man, presumably a Notting Hill Carnival goer, can be seen humping his crotch against a woman lying on her back underneath him on the wet ground.
A pair of their mates then join in, turning the action into a laughing foursome; a man and a woman can be seen staring at the performance from the windows of a nearby house.
Plenty of internet users have voiced their distaste for the raunchy road romp, sarcastically calling it "family-oriented."

Such culture, I can almost smell the enrichment seeping out of them.— Albert Francis Simmonds ❌ (@SimmondsAlbert) 26 августа 2018 г.
I'm almost at the point of abandonment.

Some people, however, deemed the routine funny and harmless and praised it as part of the Caribbean culture.
This is a part of black carribean culture. Nobody is being harmed so I don’t see what’s so animalistic about it? Just be honest about your prejudices— ❔ (@Ajsantino) 26 августа 2018 г.

The simulated sex is apparently part of a style of a popular dance, known as "Daggering", that originated in Jamaica and includes people simulating various sexual positions. The Jamaican government banned "daggering" songs in 2009, claiming that they promote aggression and violence.
Notting Hill Carnival is Europe's biggest street festival; it celebrates the British West Indian community. First held in 1966, it takes place every August and features Caribbean food, music and dance with a large colorful parade.
