Americans burst out into their national anthem while food shopping – and the reaction from Brits is hilarious
An impromptu display of patriotism is confusing Brits after footage from inside an American supermarket on Independence Day went viral this weekend.
The clip, which shows a gaggle of food shoppers joining forces to recite The Star-Spangled Banner has been described in moving terms by many viewers.
However, British observers seem incredibly bemused by the spectacle, causing a divide online.
Americans sing the national anthem while food shopping
In the video dozens of individual food shoppers appear to simultaneously stop mid-grocery run, place their hands over their hearts and burst into a rendition of the American national anthem.
