first_img‘IT’S NOT SOMETHING you see every day’ — as one onlooker noted.The circumstances of how a fight broke out today between a street performer dressed as Spiderman, and another man, not dressed as Spiderman, are unclear as yet.However, thankfully — it appears all involved came out of the encounter on Dublin’s South Anne Street relatively unscathed.It all starts quite violently indeed — the blue-tracksuited man appearing to connect with a few punches. ‘Spiderman’ then wrestles him to the ground, and the pair engage in a brief scuffle over the second man’s baseball hat.It all gets a bit weird after that. (Weirder still.)The ‘superhero’ apparently decides he doesn’t want to let the man past a certain point in the street (past the Gotham Café, appropriately enough).There’s a few more handbag-like encounters — after which a number of onlookers intervene, and the whole situation appears to calm down a little.The whole video can be viewed here.
