The incident is believed to have taken place in Worcester in the small hours one morning, with a time stamp reading 3.36am suggesting the drama may have unfolded after a night out.
In the video, an altercation appears to be underway in the street, with a man wearing a yellow hoodie seen swinging punches.
Another man is facing the road with his back to the camera when, all of a sudden, the first bloke tries to land a punch on him from behind.
However, the second lad is completely unaware and moves away before bending down – in turn leaving the first man to swipe at the air and lurch forward onto the ground.
The video seems to have originally been shared on Snapchat, but was reposted on Twitter with the caption: “Got to love Worcester ay.”
Since being posted on 1 July, it has racked up a whopping 17.2 million views and almost 500,000 likes.
One person commented: “The funniest thing is that the guy doesn't even know he’s tried to punch him!”
Someone else said: “Man has spidey senses. Casually steps forward and bends over to pick something up to cause the swing and miss. Love it.”
A third wrote: “Love how he quickly got up and decided better against a 2nd attempt and walked off in the opposite direction.”
A fourth added: “What kind of cartoon move is that.. man picked up a nickel and dodged the hit lmao.”

Others pointed out the dangers of a ‘sucker punch’, and that it was good that the man in the yellow hoodie missed as it otherwise may have been a 'brilliant way to kill someone'.
One wrote: “Sucker punch to the back of the head is the d**kest of d**k moves and a great way to kill someone. They’re both lucky he missed.”
Another agreed: “These people need to learn why punches to the back of the head (rabbit punches) are illegal in boxing."
Indeed, the only scraps you should be concerned with after a night out are the ones you can get from the fish and chip shop... Food before fists, every time.
