Fully-clothed man swims in hotel reception fish tank

This is the moment when a fully-clothed guy named Matt entered a huge 12,000 litre fishtank at the 4-star Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel at St. Helier on the island of Jersey. It’s the largest fishtank in the Channel Islands and a focal point of the hotel reception, with dozens of colourful fish. Cajoled by his friends who filmed the incident, and possibly under the influence of alcohol, he decided to have some fun. Warning: don’t watch if you’re offended by foul language, as the security staff member is less than impressed.

  1. Wow, that’s crazy! All I could think was “poor little fishes”! While it WAS pretty stupid, I have to think that guy would be lots of fun at a cocktail party, right?

  2. This guy is absolutely crazy…. No doubt he would be alot of fun at a cocktail party but alcohol + fish tank swimming = Not smart at all.
    Did they do a count of the fish later ?
    Hope he is alright though..

  3. It’s not funny, just pathetic attention speaking. Who cares if the prick is alright? I would have loved to be the security guard and see if the guy likes swimming with some bigger fish…
