happy slaps, happy slapping.

Slapping a random person (they can be on the bus, walking down the street, whatever) whilst recording the act with a video camera phone. It's a very unfortunate London phenomenon. Attackers are usually yoots (ghetto versions of chavs) thinking they are rudeboys. Victims are usually boys around the same age as the attackers, but it's not unknown for victims to be older, or even women. Sometimes the tables are turned, as there are videos going around where the attacker is happy slapped by the victim. More power to the victims, I say. The act is totally random, so be on the lookout for a group of pussified yoots pointing their camera phone (that their mum bought) at you.
I hope to God that one day a happy slap victim is a psycho and shanks the happy slapper in the face.

If you get happy slapped, grab the camera phone and smash it on the ground.

Youths trying to act rude can be most male and female randomly slapping people either complete strangers or people they know. More recently it is private school kids in London(have been some cases in southend) trying to prove they arent lil rich kids. Started in public schools. After it was made illegal the name has been changed and there are now many different names plus many different variations of how it's done.

Its a SICK SICK craze, pursued by youngsters. It involves a gang of youths going up to random people in public or in school and physically victimising them when they least expect it. Meanwhile, one of the gang members is busy filming the violence and stupididity with a video phone, for the gang to laugh at. It is horrible and terrifying for the innocent victim;Hilarious for the sad gang.
Happened to me. Walking down the street at 10pm at night quite innocently on the way home from a club with my younger sister and 2 of her friends when a load of people of about our age started on us. The damage caused was dead painful, and it seemed a lot longer than it probably was. Meanwhile, this wanker said "smile for the camera" and filmed us with a video phone

A situation in which a chav or scally will approach you with the aim of filming you being slapped, punched, or otherwise inconvenienced, but instead gets a broken jaw, a hospital stay and his phone stolen.

The happy part is sending the video to every single person in the would-be perpetrator's phone, especially if there's one called "Mam".
If anyone tries happy slapping me when I am next in England then this is what will happen.

A growing craze mostly popular with groups of chavs, especially in the London area, where they single out a complete stranger and smack them on the head, usually whilst recording it on a video phone, then do a runner.

The victim is almost always totally unaware, and they use it to their advantage so the vicim doesn't have a chance to grab the slapper and beat the living shit out of them.
Happy slappers are more evidence that humanity is either doomed or splitting.

A craze where complete idiots in an attempt to gain popularity with their complete idiot friends film themselves attacking innocent passers by.
this happened to me once , there was 2 boys about my age and one had a video phone pointed at me and the other was walking over to me , the boy went to happy slap me and I headbutted the tosser right in the nose and chased his friend off. Though if it happens to you and theres more people , just run.

where twat townies come up to a person and slap them whilst one of their mates record it on a cam fone
There is, however, a reversal but u gotta get your timin right (u can see wen its gonna happen cos a chav will be walkin fairly quickly to you and close by someone will have a fone out aimin roughly in ur direction. when he brings his hand up hes vulnerable, and then you slap him, AS HARD AS POSSIBLE!!! then run off give em the finger if you want just to add effect
