Internet freaks out after “immortal” fried fish moves

Although there are quite a few types of food that can be eaten raw, most of the food we intake needs to be cooked first so that it will not cause a stir inside out stomach. But, how would you react if a cooked fish in front of you suddenly started moving?

In a video that recently made rounds in the Chinese social media site, Weibo, a deep-fried fish can be seen as if it was twitching its body all of sudden on a serving tray. The seafood was seen wiggling its body as three other fried fish was laid next to it. The action caused the fish’s body to tear apart and its cooked meat could be seen.

According to Daily Mail, the video was said to be taken in Hengyang, Hunan Province in southern China.

The video was shared repeatedly by many netizens on the social media platform. In the video, a woman can be heard shouting when the fish started to move unexpectedly. She screamed: “Oh, no, no, no! It’s cracking.”

Netizens also had various reactions to the video. There were some who said that it was too cruel for whoever prepared the food to cook the fish while it was still alive.

There are also others who said that the seafood was not fried long enough as there are still nerve cells which reacted to the stimuli. It should have been cooked for an additional five minutes or so, suggested another netizen.
