WATCH: Drunk Man Stuck On Wrong Escalator

Wednesday 14th November 2012

This is the awkward moment that a drunk businessman tried to walk down the up-escalator at Tottenham Court Road station.

The hilarious clip was given to The Sun by a fellow commuter who filmed the confused man stumbling down the wrong way in the tube station.

A succession of people try unsuccessfully to help him off the escalator, before one helpful woman hit the emergency stop button and guided him away.

Sam Napper, who filmed the embarrassing moment, said: ďAt first I thought he was playing silly buggers with a few of his FX Trader mates but when we saw his dogged stagger and realised he was alone, I knew we were about to witness something truly brilliant.

After pausing for a few seconds, he turned around and walked out, as if nothing ever happened, saying nothing."
