Video Shows Moment Cafe Fish Tank Breaks And Soaks Two Customers
Picture the scene, you're sitting enjoying a lovely coffee, perhaps even a wee scone, in a nice café.
Suddenly, your peace and tranquility is shattered as the glass front of an aquarium that takes up pretty much the whole back wall of the establishment cracks through, divesting its contents all over you, your mate and the floor.
You'd be pretty annoyed, right?
Well, that's exactly what happened to two blokes in the city of Niksic in Western Montenegro. Luckily for us - and unluckily for them - the whole incident was recorded on the café's CCTV system. Check it out for yourself above.
The two men, whose names have not been reported, were just sitting there having a lovely old chat, as you do when you're out for a brew with your mate.
Little did they know that the glass behind them was simply under too much stress.
But what about the fish in the aquarium? Surely they wouldn't be too happy with that development, either?

We are assured that no fish were harmed in the making of this video. According to an employee at the café - called Café Macka - the fish tank was empty.
Much like the story yesterday in which a bird was seen being sucked into a gigantic hole in a lake but apparently emerged unscathed, we'll just have to take the guy's word for it.
The aforementioned staff member, Igor Vucurovic, said: "It was probably a factory mistake in the glass. The aquarium was new it had only been there for two days so we had no time to put fish in it.
"The men are not injured and luckily there were no children there. But the damage was huge, between 6,000 EUR (£5,130) and 7,000 EUR (£6,000).
"They will not give us a new aquarium or cover the damages because it seems it's not their fault as they apparently purchased the glass somewhere else.
"We have no insurance. The damages were so high because the water ruined a lot of new stuff and unique furniture."
Ah man, that's not great. After all, there doesn't seem like an awful lot that anyone could have done about the glass smashing. You've got to feel for them.
Either way, apparently the café is back open now, following an extensive period of mopping and cleaning.
It'll be a while before they get a fish tank put back in, you'd have to imagine.
