VIDEO: Texas Tuba Player Teach Obnoxious Heckler A Lesson

A Texas tuba player has gone viral after being captured on video reaching his breaking point with an obnoxious heckler and deciding to teach his tormentor a tough lesson on respect.

Although the details were few and far between, that didn’t stop a video captured during a Saturday college football game between Texas Southern and Jackson State from going viral. The short clip, which didn’t even last an entire minute, featured a Texas Southern University tuba player who was being put to the test by an aggressive Jackson State fan and very quickly reached his breaking point.

The video footage, taken from the stands, begins with the Texas college band’s tuba player bouncing along to the music as the Jackson State fan starts yelling at him, the NY Post reported. As the fan aggressively yells at the tuba player, he tries to remain composed and attempts to continue playing with the band. However, he eventually decides he has had enough.

As seen in the short clip, the fan was yelling at the tuba player moments before all hell seemed to break loose—at least for a brief moment. With the fan in his face, the Texas Southern tuba player very quickly decides to bring the Jackson State heckler’s outburst to an end, punching the bully in the stands.

Having had enough from the fan, the Texas Southern musician swiftly knocks out his obnoxious tormentor during the Saturday football game before he nonchalantly continues his performance, playing his instrument as if the altercation never happened, without seeming to even miss a beat.

Although it’s not known what was said before the tuba player decided to throw hands, “the Texas Southern tuba player says something to the man before swiftly punching him four times in the face,” the Post reported, adding, “In one recording of the incident, the band member can be heard telling the aggressive fan, ‘F–k off, b—h.’”
