Two Men and an Escalator – level 3

17-08-2022 15:00

Somebody filmed on camera two elderly Polish men going up an escalator at a shopping centre the wrong way. They decided to go for a hit after an announcement of free burgers.

A large group of people watched as both of them stumbled and fell on the escalator. They eventually made it to the top and received cheers from the crowd. Let’s just hope that the painful climb was worth it.

Difficult words: announcement (saying something officially to people), stumble (trip or lose balance).
