A grumpy middle-aged man who became an instant celebrity when a video of him ferociously scolding a fellow young bus passenger became a hit on youtube.com. The young bus rider tapped the middle-aged man on his shoulder to request him to keep his voice down while talking on his cell phone. The man reacted vehemently and scolded the young man. The process was filmed by a 22-year-old man with his cell phone and the 6-minute footage was posted on youtube. As of now, the video has accumulated over 2 million hits and the phrases used by the middle-aged man - 'You face pressure. I face pressure' and 'Not resolved yet. Not resolved yet. Not resolved yet.' - have become the hottest catchphrases in Hong Kong. Newspapers around the world have reported this phenomenon.
Keep your voice down when you're on the bus. You don't want to be another Bus Uncle. You know, you face pressure, I face pressure, everybody faces pressure.

A six-minute film showing a grumpy man scolding a fellow bus passenger in Hong Kong for interrupting his cell phone call.Bus Uncle,as the film is known,has been viewed nearly 1.7m times on the video website Youtube.com-the second most-viewed video on the site in May-spawning spoofs and new slang.The grainy film,which is apparently shot with a mobile phone on the top o'a double-decker bus, is hilarious for its absurdity and dramatic twists.The film starts with the middle-aged protagonist reacting strongly when a young man sitting behind him taps his shoulder 2 ask him 2 keep his voice down while talkin'on the phone.
Bus uncle:"I don't know you.You don't know me.Why do you do this?"the infuriated man says, punctuating the sentence by jabbing his right hand downward in the air.When the young man,who rarely talks back during the argument,expresses an unwillingness to continue the conversation, the middle-aged man explodes,"This is not resolved!This is not resolved!"-now a catchphrase in Hong Kong.He goes on to say:"I face pressure.You face pressure.Why did you provoke me?"Just when the dispute seems to have ended after the young man apologises and the two shake hands,the young man takes issue with profanity used by the middle-aged man,who then launches into another round of swearwords.Netusers've also added Chinese&English subtitles.The video has inspired numerous spoofs,including a karaoke version and a rap song using the middle-aged man's refrain:"I face pressure.You face pressure."
