This grim video shows a suspected drug addict making gargling noises and shaking his head like a dog while his jacket is pulled over his face.
The "zombie man" was filmed in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, by a concerned passerby who thinks he was high on spice at 9.30am last Saturday, Stoke-on-Trent Live reports.
In the clip, the shirtless man is seen bent double with his legs splayed while he wrestles with his jacket unsuccessfully.
He bobs up and down while growling to himself and the man who filmed him, a local dad, claims he was threatened when he offered help.

Wishing to remain anonymous, the 35-year-old told Stoke-on-Trent Live: "He was definitely on something and by the looks of him it was spice. We tried to help him at first but he threatened and backhanded us.
"I've known people who have been addicted to drugs who have been desperate to quit. But there are others who don't give a damn about anybody else and are happy to do this in front of children in a city centre."
The dad said he has lived in Hanley "all his life" but now won't take his wife and kids anywhere near the town because it is too distressing for them to see.
He said: "I work in Hanley and see this on average 10 times a week and I decided to record it to show just how bad it has got. It's frightening."

Describing the bleak situation further, the dad called for the authorities to open up more services for addicts to get help, or else spice use could spread into schools.
He said: "The drugs are so cheap and easy to get hold of. They're synthetic and the effects are scary. They go crazy on it. They turn into zombies.
"It's getting worse and worse and I wouldn't be surprised if it's in schools soon. It's so depressing to see."
