Queen's Guard punches annoying tourist...or so it seems

The Queen's Guards have once again had it with tourists constantly taunting them. While one Queen's Guard pulled a rifle on a tourist just a few weeks ago, another Queen's Guard has punched an annoying tourist.

...Or so it seems. It turns out the insanely viral video is actually a controversial prank by Troll Station, who have created a small compilation of prank videos about tourists harassing the Queen's Guard in the past few weeks. Everyone in the videos are actors, including the supposed Queen's Guard. The videos include the Queen's Guard punching a man in the face, being hit by a man, and throwing tourists to the ground.

Some consider the video disrespectful and tasteless, as the woman at the end of the Youtube video suggests. These soldiers protect the royal family and should be honored and respected. These videos thus make an ignorant mockery of the Queen's Guard.

Others view it as a commentary on annoying tourists who just won't leave the poor soldiers alone. While it's unlikely that a Queen's Guard would ever actually punch a tourist, we have to believe they're tempted quite often.

Regardless of the lacking genuineness of this video, it has racked up over 3 million views and serves as a message that harassing the Queen's Guard is not cool. Leave them alone or you might just be the recipient of a mean right hook one day (but probably not).

Watch this video to see the REAL Queen's Guard pulling a rifle on a tourist:
